SHEFFIELD United stars took time out from training to promote blood donor sessions at Bramall Lane in September.

NHS mascot Billy Blood Drop met some of the Blades players, who are encouraging fans to help save lives and give blood.

Holly Mason, lead donor relations manager at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “A constant supply of blood is needed all year round.

“NHSBT would like to thank all donors for their continuing generosity, but would like to now appeal to those SUFC fans who are thinking about becoming a donor – there’s no better time than now.”

The session at SUFC is on Wednesday, September 28, from 11.45am to 2.30pm and from 4pm until 7.30pm.

New donors should be aged between 17 and 65 and weigh over 50kg or 7 stone 12lbs and be in good health.
