Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant said: “We need 400 people to register as new donors every day to maintain the blood supply, for the best chance of keeping patients alive. For many reasons it’s vital that young people continue to register and donate – particularly young men – not least because older people become less likely to be able to donate blood.
“Please do something amazing and book an appointment to start saving lives, especially if you live or work near to one of our donor centres.”
