I love that feeling of joy from helping someone out; that my blood has made a difference to another person's life.
Jackie, blood donor
It's my way of giving to the community – I don't get much time to volunteer but I can always find time to donate blood.
Nicola, blood donor
It takes me about a day to get back up after a treatment. I feel amazing. It’s probably what feels normal to everyone else, but it feels special to me.
Hayley, plasma recipient
