Allen and Jenna's story


Just after Jenna and Allen married, Allen was in a serious motorbike accident. He arrested three times and received at least three units of blood to save his life.

Jenna says, "Thanks to the amazing staff, a few operations, lots of TLC and those fantastic blood donors who were there when he needed them, he made a miraculous recovery.

"To help others and raise awareness where I can, I donate whenever I am able. From myself and my son, thank you to everyone who gives blood regularly."

Thank you to Jenna and Allen for allowing us to share their story. A very merry Christmas to you and all the family.
