The phone call came for me to donate blood again...
Not that this is a problem as it is such a great thing to do if you can do it. That is the thing - most people can and boy do they need a lot of the stuff each year. If willing and able you can donate every 3 months. The staff are great and friendly. You still get a tea, juice or coffee and off course a chocolate biscuit!
Opening hours are flexible these days to accommodate working hours, so you can donate after work on the way home if that suits.
I managed to get my son Alex along too this time so hopefully he will be another regular - other than at the pub!
Go to their website - www.nzblood.co.nz for any info on your "local" and hours.
