Balloons will fill city skies

Have your say

THE release of 500 balloons into the skies above Sheffield will mark a national awareness day highlighting the importance of blood donation this week.

The local branch of NHS Blood and Transplant has organised the event in Fargate, Sheffield city centre, at 3pm tomorrow.

Blood donors, people who have had their lives saved using donated blood, and supporters from across the region will come together as part of National Blood Week, which runs until Sunday, to celebrate the gift of life.
