WITH only four per cent of the population currently making regular blood donations, and hospitals constantly needing to give transfusions, the NHS Blood and Transplant Service is calling for people to donate their blood next week in sessions running at the Chateau Impney just outside Droitwich.

The sessions are taking place on Monday, April 28 from 1-3.30pm and from 4.30-7pm at the hotel.

Potential donors are advised to call ahead on 0300 1232323 to book an appointment before going along. For more information on the session and on others coming up in the area, visit blood.co.uk.
