Appeal goes out for blood donors
NHS Blood and Transplant is encouraging people in Ashford to become blood donors this summer before they head off on their holidays.
Blood stocks fall over the summer as people have less time to donate – but the NHS relies on 7,000 people across England and Wales giving blood every day.
There will be a donor session at the Swan Centre in Turner Close, in South Willesborough on Wednesday, August 13.
Donation times are between 1.30pm and 4pm and then 5pm to 7.30pm.
Anyone aged between 17 to 65, and who weighs more than 50kg (7st 12lb), can give blood.
