New blood donor appeal launched
10:25am Monday 28th January 2013 in News
People in Bradford are being urged not to let the short month of February stop them giving blood.
With only 28 days, NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is appealing to new and existing donors in the area to make a date to donate in plenty of time.
Blood stocks can come under pressure during the winter as adverse weather and seasonal illnesses prevent donors from keeping their appointments, making it important for people to give blood if they are able.
Donor relations manager for Yorkshire Donna Batty, said: “We’d urge both existing and new donors to help save lives by booking into one of their local sessions as soon as they can.
"This can be done quickly and easily by going to www.blood.co.uk or calling 0300 123 23 23.”
