You’re needed to help blood supply

AS SPRING arrives, people are being encouraged to make use of the longer days and help save lives.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is asking blood donors, old and new, to make an extra effort to attend donor sessions.

“With this year’s Royal Wedding taking place as well as the normal Easter holidays, we need to make sure blood stocks remain healthy over both bank holiday weekends,” said a spokesman.

Sessions are being held today at William Farr School in Welton, on April 26 in Louth’s British Legion Hall and on May 6 in the Festival Hall at Market Rasen.

To book an appointment call the Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23 or visit, where a full list of sessions is also available.
