Give blood in Wimbledon next week
10:50am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
Wimbledon residents are being asked to give blood at a donation session next week.
NHS Blood and Transplant will hold the session at Sacred Heart Presbytery in Edge Hill on Monday October 7.
Doners can either book an appointment or simply walk in, and it takes about an hour to donate.
Hospitals in England and North Wales need 7,000 units of blood every day, with each donation potentially saving up to three lives.
First time donors should be between 17 and 65 years old, be in general good health and weigh at least seven stone and 12 pounds.
There is no upper age limit for donors who have donated in the last two years.
