Be a giver and save lives this summer

Beefeaters give blood

Forgive me for being smug but I have what is basically the best blood ever. It’s not that it attracts Robert Pattinson or anything (though that has yet to be tested), it’s that it can save anybody’s life. O- is the best blood type because it can be received by any other human being, but those who have it can only receive O- in return. Which means that our generosity is also virtuous, making us superheroes, essentially. Sometimes, though, we superheroes get slack and forget that in order to help we need to actually give blood, and with London even more full of people than normal this summer the need for our services is greater still. So, fellow O- dudes, head on over to blood.co.uk to find out where you can donate right this minute. Your city needs you! Other blood types also very welcome – you’re pretty great too.
