17-65? Give it a go


Dundee resident Ann Fenton has just made her 100th donation - and encourages anyone aged 17-65 to give it a go.

Ann gives her 100th donation

Ann first gave blood as a student in Edinburgh, but kept up the habit when she got married, moved to Dundee, and started working in Ninewells Hospital as an IT Consultant.

She says, 'I'm now retired and give blood every twelve to sixteen weeks at Dundee Blood Donor Centre. It's an easy thing to do, the appointments make it so much better for me to keep up regular donations. As soon as I get my text reminder, I just go online and book in at a time that suits me. If you're fit and healthy and aged between 17 and 65, there's a good chance you'll be able to give blood - it doesn't take long and it's a great thing to do.'
