LOCAL PEOPLE NEEDED TO BOOST BLOOD STOCKS
The National Blood Service (NBS) has issued a call
to residents of Melton Mowbray to help give a much-needed boost to a
blood donor session being held in the town on Tuseday
July 4th 2006 at the The Methodist Church.
An NBS spokesperson said: "We hope that local residents in Melton will support this session by coming forward to give blood, as we rely on them to help us meet our targets. Every person who donates really will help to save or improve someone's life, so please spare us just an hour of your time and come forward at this session."
Both new and regular donors can make appointments for the session by calling the 24-hour helpline on 0845 7 711 711.
Hospitals in Leicestershire use around 940 blood donations every week - every one of which is given by a volunteer donor. Every single donation helps to save or improve the life a hospital patient, whether it's a person suffering from a serious blood disease such as leukaemia, someone undergoing surgery, or an accident and emergency case.
