URGENT APPEAL TO GIVE BLOOD…
JPC is reaching out for your help on behalf of NHS Blood and Transplant to give blood ahead of the Easter period.
Recent bad weather led to the cancellation of some blood donation sessions and between 6-7,000 units of blood were lost as a result. This could take weeks to recover, and that’s why your support is so needed, right now.
Despite many donors coming forward, there are still appointments to fill donor centres across the country to ensure blood stocks don’t drop further before Easter. Current stocks of group O (the universal blood type used in emergencies), group B, and A positive blood are particularly low at the moment.
If you are able to give blood, please book an appointment and help NHS Blood and Transplant in the run up to Easter.
You can make and keep your appointment by calling the Donor Line on 0300 123 23 23 or visit www.blood.co.uk
