    You must be 17 to donate blood so a session in a school may not work too well.

    :confused: the only use i'd see in that would be if the school was open for the public/parents to come in as well, on a special day.

    At my school they had a session for sixth formers, joint with the boys' school I think, and I believe it was quite successful...

    well about 2/3 of sixth form (assuming the school has one). i just stated the reason why most schools don't bother having one. it would be a good idea if more people than just a few of the older students/teachers were involved though as a school is a good community setting after all.

    I've always wondered why it is 17 and not 16 or 18. Both my parents give blood but I've never really thought about it. I believe it is something to encourage, although they could help themselves by changing a few of their rules on giving blood.

    Tell them...they'll ask you quite a few questions before you're allowed to donate anyway.

    I'm giving blood today too - woohoo!

    I think that (from memory) simple dental work need 24 hours, and more complex dental work is 7 days. Let them know anyway.

    until they stick the needle into your arm, the blood doesnt come out & youre in obvious pain, and they just try to twist the needle within your arm, making it much worse, messing up your weight training for 3 weeks and you realise that instead of getting the vein she just pierced through the tendons in your arm....

    but other than that 1st time giving blood was ok
