PEOPLE in South Holland are being urged to create their own milestone as the Queen reaches 60 years on the throne – by renewing their commitment to giving blood or donating for the first time.
It is especially important to give blood around Bank Holidays when donations dip as routines get disrupted.
The latest push is part of an ongoing campaign to boost blood stocks to 30 per cent above usual levels before the Olympics.
You can donate blood at a session at Spalding’s Springfields Events Centre on Monday, from 1.30pm-4pm and 5pm-8pm. Call 0300 1232323.
