BUS driver Bob Eastwood has given his 75th pint of blood.
And he has pledged to keep going until he has given 100 pints to the National Blood Service.
"I thought it was a worthwhile thing to do and the service needs more blood now than it ever did," said Mr Eastwood, 52, of Southern Road, Cowlersley.
He gave his first pint at the age of 18 at the old YMCA building in St Peter's Street.
And his 75th pint was given at St John's Junior and Infant School, Golcar.
His wife, Cathy, is unable to give blood as she is diabetic, but Mr Eastwood has encouraged his sons to take part.
Steve, 22, is a regular giver and second son Kevin, 18, may also start soon.
Mr Eastwood received an emerald award certificate and an enamel badge to mark the achievement.
He is also due to attend a ceremony for other emerald award recipients in Yorkshire in the next few weeks.
Mr Eastwood has worked as a driver for First Bus for a year.
He was an electrical engineer at Brook Crompton in St Thomas's Road, Folly Hall, for 30 years before being made redundant last December.
