NHS Blood donor logo

A challenge to all ages, but especially young people, comes from the NHS to give blood. The NHS Blood and Transplant Service, to give it its full title, is seeking to recruit more young people to ensure there is never a shortage of blood in an emergency. You can volunteer as young as 16 and start donating from 17. Thereafter, if you have never given blood before, you may give blood between your 17th and 65th birthday. Returning donors, if you have had no adverse events you can return as a donor up until 70. Regular donors you can continue to given blood over the age of 70 as long as you remain in good health and made one donation within the last 2 years.
On Thursday 17th September then, if you, or a friend, has an hour to spare between 1.15pm — 3.15pm or 4.15pm — 6.45pm, why not book an appointment at our community centre? You can phone 0300 123 2323 or go online at Or you can just turn up, although space for walk-ins is limited. Apart from great personal satisfaction, there is always the free cup of tea and biscuit to look forward to. Go on — give blood!
