TWO Huddersfield men who have each given 75 units of blood have been honoured by the National Blood Service.
Michael Robinson, of Netheroyd Hill, Huddersfield, and Trevor Jones, of Emley, received crystal plaques from the Rev Brian Shackleton on behalf of the Service.
The presentation was at a ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Leeds.
Mr Shackleton, of Sillington, North Yorkshire, was asked to present the plaques because his late wife Alwyn received 307 units of blood while suffering from leukaemia.
Her life was extended for four years with the help of blood transfusions.
Cancer patients regularly receive blood as part of their treatment or to cope with the effects of treatment such as chemotherapy.
Blood is also required for hospital operations.
Anyone interested in donating blood should contact the NBS Donor Helpline on 0845 7711 711.
