How to find egg donors

We went on the waiting list in 2007 for IVF initially because my husband's sperm count was low. Having been referred to St Marys in Manchester the tests showed that my AMH levels were so low that egg donation was the only answer.
As this is on the NHS the clinic cannot help with egg donation so its up to us to find one.
This is day one - need to go for counselling yet, but wondered if anyone has any tips for searching for one. Seen matching sites such as conceptiondirect.com and donorhope.com but not sure of the ethics and if these are allowed.
I'm 36, husband is 50 and both of white origin.

Do you know what the cut off age is at St Marys? I am looking to be a doner or egg share in exchange for reduced IVF. My local clinic cut off age is 35 and im 37.

Oh great! Though i may have found somewhere! Do you know if u can find someone who will except u as their doner it matters how old you are? I have been told i am ideal for egg doner as i already have children so my eggs are proven (strange way of putting it) but it is just my age that clinics wont ok.
