More blood donors needed

Volunteers are needed to become potential lifesavers by giving blood.

NHS Blood and Transplant is appealing for volunteers to attend a blood donor session on Monday, September 2, from 1pm to 3.30pm and 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Saxon Hall in Raunds. To book an appointment call 0300 1232323.

Only four per cent of those who could give blood do so. Anyone aged 17 to 65, in good health and weighing at least seven stone 12lb is eligible.
