    I have given 72 units so far. It is a very worthy cause. You lie on a bed and they put a needle in a vein in your arm, the blood flows into a bag it take maybe five minutes. They are very good and don,t hurt you.

    You don't feel a thing mate, but i have never had a phobia of anything so i don't know how you feel about it. I would say that if you do go, they're always good to the first timers, I hope you give it a go diet.

    Very worth while - I used to donate but since having a transfusion I am no longer eligible. Check out the blood transfusion website as there are a few things which render you unsuitable:
