On Sunday, July 12, seven of us met to give blood at the Red Cross in Liverpool. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We all took our turns giving blood and then met in the "cantina" to talk and laugh and drink juice and eat crackers.
When everyone was finished (and it was clear that no one was going to pass out), we all headed over the The Retreat, a nearby restaurant, for further hydration, talking, air conditioning, and giant portions of food.
It felt good to do a good deed, and the whole thing was a lot of fun, so we hope to make this a regular activity!
