This week is National Blood Week, so what's stopping you from giving a pint of the good stuff to help others?
For most of us, there's no good reason not to - especially since every unit of blood you donate could save or improve the lives of up to THREE people.
I speak from experience - it actually doesn't hurt. The finger test at the start to check your iron levels is the worst bit. And you get a free cup of tea afterwards.
If you're not sure, take the Donor Health Check and see if you're in a fit state to donate.
