Just (me & my eye bags) creeping on your Insta-timeline to say, if you can*, please give blood.
@givebloodnhs stocks drop in autumn so, if you've been thinking about it, here's why you should:
1. It's really quick, the whole donation process takes about 7 mins. Quicker than the average Instagram scroll. ⏲
2. It doesn't hurt (coming from a squeamish needle wimp who put off donating for years - it hurts less than a blood test) 💉
3. You can easily help save someone's life (or in my case help out a sickle cell patient) ✌🏼️ 4. You get free biscuits 🍪
5. You get free biscuits 🍪🍪 n.b. Totally aware not everyone can donate and I think the current rules around (L)GBTQ+ donors are completely outdated & ridiculous - but for now it's even more important that those who can donate, do.
