World Blood Donor Day!

Why should you Donate Blood?

If you were to donate blood you would be able to save three whole lives with only one pint of blood.

Blood is a vital part of life and for many people blood donors are their lifeline. Currently only 1 in 30 people give blood, but 1 in 3 people will need blood in their lifetime.

Who can Donate Blood?

If you have tattoos then you can't give blood because the ink from the tattoos sinks into your blood stream.

If you are 16 or 17 years old, you must have parental consent to donate blood and you can keep donating blood until you're 71st birthday.
