A BLOOD donor session will take place in Holmfirth.
The session will be next Wednesday at the Methodist Church at School Street, off Crown Bottom in Holmfirth.
People can give blood between 1.30 and 3.30pm and from 5.30 to 7.30pm.
New or regular donors can contact 0845 7711 711 or visit www.blood.co.uk to make an appointment to donate or find more information about being a blood donor.
Donors are needed to ensure that blood stocks stay healthy so that hospitals throughout the area can continue to carry out treatments to save and improve patients’ lives.
Autumn is traditionally the time when colds and flu start to take hold so regular donors can miss their appointments because they feel unwell.
Craig Taylor from the NBS said: “Most people would donate blood if someone they were close to needed it, but blood is constantly in demand as there are always patients who need transfusions.”
