World Blood Donor Day – 14th June

Today is world blood donor day- a campaign raising awareness of the need for safe blood and blood products and to thank voluntary, unpaid blood donors for their life-saving gifts of blood.

You can give blood if you:

  • are fit and healthy
  • weigh between 7 stone 12 lbs and 25 stone, or 50kg and 158kg
  • are aged between 17 and 66 (or 70 if you have given blood before)
  • are over 70 and have given a full blood donation in the last two years

You can register to become a blood donor on the NHS blood and transplant site. You can also contact the service on 0300 123 2323.
