Give blood

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, The Scot­tish Na­tional Blood Trans­fu­sion Ser­vice (SNBTS) re­quires 470 peo­ple to give blood ev­ery day dur­ing De­cem­ber. And with Christ­mas day fall­ing on what is tra­di­tion­ally one of the strong­est col­lec­tion days of the week, we are ask­ing donors to en­sure they know their blood group and come for­ward now so that stocks con­tinue to build in the run up to the fes­tive sea­son.

Any­one over the age of 17 in gen­eral good health and weigh­ing more than 7st 12lbs, could po­ten­tially be­come a blood donor. To regis­ter as a blood donor or to find out where your near­est do­na­tion ses­sion is, call 0845 90 90 999, or visit­
