I have blood that is used for antinatal and neonatal transfusions. One donation is enough for five babies. I can give blood four times a year. That is twenty babies getting a full transfusion.
I live in France and cannot give blood here due to issues relating to CJD. So to donate I need to fly to East Midlands then a bus to Nottingham. As I cannot get straight back I will need accomodation until the next day. In all this costs just over 200 pounds. I hope to raise 900 which should be sufficient for me to travel four times a year.
There is information on the internet if you would like to know more about my type of blood, CMV anti body negative.
