If you are not already a regular blood donor, please consider becoming one!
Blood donations saved the life of local Green Party member Hugh Tuffen last October, after he was involved in a serious road accident. Thankfully he is on the road to recovery.
More donations are needed, particularly in the winter, and particularly from black people or others with less common blood types. Donor eligibility rules changed a couple of months ago, so even if you have been ruled out in the past it may be worth doing the eligibility check again.
It’s easy to make an appointment at a time and place to suit you, and donating blood takes no more than 1 hour, up to three times a year.
