I always give blood just before Christmas.
This year I turned up only to be asked if I had an appointment, which I didn't. Luckily I was able to give blood as they had a free slot. It's a shame that the number of donation beds has been cut quite dramatically over the years since I started and you can no longer drop in on the spur of the moment to donate blood. Working full time you can't ways find the time to commit to an appointment - however in future I will try.
As always the staff are a pleasant and friendly lot and the half hour passes quickly.
