the Mayor and Mayoress of Rotherham did their bit to boost blood stocks by donating two pints at a community drop-in session.
Coun Shaun Wright and his wife Lisa visited Rotherham Leisure Centre to make their contribution and raise awareness of the importance of blood donation.
Coun Wright said: “I cannot stress too highly the importance of being a blood donor.
“Every family must know of somebody who has benefited from this fantastic service.
“There is a constant demand for blood though and it is essential that people keep stepping up to the mark to ensure that there are always available supplies.”
