Subtitle of the video: “Just did that @givebloodnhs with one of the most popular bloodsuckers @willflanders. And a record time for me of 5 minutes 21 seconds for about 0.5 l woo hoo!” the TV host received hundreds of messages of support.
She said: “Hello, it’s that time again, cramp your buttocks, lift your legs, squeeze your arms, donate blood today.
“I’m with my dear friend Ross, who has now got used to my thin veins and makes it absolutely pain-free.
“I guess six and a half, seven minutes, I’ll be done, I’ll be out and enjoy the rest of my day.
“If you can donate blood and you want to donate blood, you just know you are doing something good. Anyway, see you at the BBC breakfast. “
Fans were rushing to shower the host with praise when a user said, “Thank you very much. You are a lifesaver.”
Another said, “Good for you, Naga. I was with my mother in the 1970s when she donated blood to help, such as volunteering at the NHS. My father would not have been alive today as a sprightly 85-year-old if he had not had 7 blood transfusions after an RTC in the 1970s. “
One fan added, “You are a champion! Thank you.”
A fourth wrote, “Great job Naga !!”
Most people can donate blood if they are fit and healthy, weigh between 2 and 25 kg, are between 17 and 66 years old, or are over 70 and have donated blood in the past two years.
