FIVE blood donors from South Holland have been honoured by NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) at an awards event in Lincoln.
The ceremony celebrated the commitment of long-serving blood donors from across the region, all of whom had donated blood on at least 75 occasions.
Janette Ashton, James Scarsbrook, Barbara Cave and David Leggott were awarded a crystal bowl for making 75 blood donations. Only three per cent of people reach 75 donations so this is a real achievement.
Meanwhile, Alan Machin received a crystal decanter for making an amazing 100 donations.
Holly Mason, lead donor relations manager for the National Blood Service, added: “All our donors are special, but it is a pleasure to thank our dedicated donors in this way.”
