Like mother, like daughter

Debra Douglas and her daughter Chloe love to give blood together and recently donated at the Marryat Hall in City Square, Dundee.

Mum Debra is almost completely blind and Chloe is happy to help guide her when attending sessions.

Debra said 'We normally donate at Ninewells but its absolutely no problem donating here. We normally give blood together and there were no issues with accessibility at Marryat Hall'. 

'I know some people might be scared but there’s nothing to be nervous about. The staff are so friendly and they really put your mind at ease'.

While attending Marryat Hall, Debra made her tenth donation and was delighted to receive her bronze award.

As for the best bit about giving blood? Debra and Chloe both agreed, 'It has to be the biscuits at the end'. 

Thanks for making your donations ladies and we hoped you enjoyed your biscuits.
