VILLAGERS have been urged to give blood tomorrow before heading off on holiday.
The National Blood Service is holding sessions at Marsden United Church from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
Spokesman Neil Simms said: “There is a constant need for blood, especially over the summer months when stocks tend to take a dip as people jet off on holiday.
“Travellers heading to Africa, Asia or Central and South America, where malaria is prevalent, can be prevented from donating for up to six months after they return to the UK.
“So it’s vital that people give before they go to keep blood stocks healthy over the summer period.”
