After my experience I feel the need to talk about this particular topic because blood donation is so important and not enough people participate. A nurse I spoke to claimed that only 3% of the population donate blood, which means that blood is

Posted on 21 February 2017 by Chloe

One of the best things about second year is living in shared housing rather than halls – and that means opportunity for house parties.
