DONORS are being sought to give blood in Sheffield this weekend.

Blood donating sessions are being held at Hillsborough Leisure Centre, on Penistone Road, Hillsborough, on Sunday, August 12.

The sessions take place from 9.30am to 12.45pm and from 1.45pm until 4pm.

Blood stocks were raised by 30 per cent in preparation for the Olympics.

Now NHS Blood and Transplant is urging donors to do their bit for the community.

Jo Steele, of NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “As the Olympics come to a close this weekend, we have blood donor sessions happening at Hillsborough Leisure centre because more people are needed to help save lives in the region.”
