Don’t forget to donate blood

Have your say

BLOOD donors in Rotherham have been thanked for their help so far this winter - and urged to show continued festive spirit by donating blood during December.

An NHS Blood and Transplant Christmas Roadshow visited Rotherham to remind donors of the need to help.

Donors and the public were invited to write a Christmas thank you message on a blood drop decoration which was then hung on a special tree.

Further December blood donor sessions in Rotherham are being held this Friday at Herringthorpe United Reformed Church, and at Wickersley School next Tuesday, December 20.

For more information or to book an appointment call 0300 123 23 23 or visit Donors must be aged 17 to 65 and in good health.
