DONORS across South Yorkshire are being asked to give blood in the run up to a global awareness day.
World Blood Donor Day takes place next Tuesday, on the birthday of Dr Landsteiner who discovered the ABO blood group in 1901. People are being asked to celebrate the event by making an appointment at a local session in the coming weeks.
Holly Mason from NHSBT, said: “It’s important that existing and new blood donors come forward and donate regularly so we can ensure vital blood supplies are available for patients that need them.”
