Some people chose to share their own stories of receiving blood transfusions and thanked Naga for her commitment to helping others.

One fan commented: “Thank and well done Naga - as am anemic, have had blood transfusions so appreciate donors like you who give.”

Others said they had been inspired by the video and had booked their own appointments to donate blood.

Most people are eligible to give blood, providing they are fit and healthy, between 7 stone 12 and 25 stone and are aged between 17 and 66.

There is a blood donation centre in Sheffield City Centre and the NHS says all donation centres are open as usual, despite coronavirus restrictions.

The NHS is urging people to continue donating blood as it is ‘essential’ to help vulnerable patients.
