We’re delighted to be part of the Joely Bear Blood Drive appeal this year, where just 10 minutes of your time could save a life
If you are in good health, aged 17 to 66 (if it’s your first time) and weigh at least 7st 12lb you can donate. You can give blood every 16 weeks, that’s approximately every four months.
Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “Blood donation is an amazing gift – each donation can save or improve the lives of up to three adults or six infants. Most people can give blood. It’s quick and easy and we need 400 new donors a day to keep the country running. Blood saves the lives of people with cancer, accident victims, premature babies, and many more people.
We thank Joely Bear all its hard work and all the lives the donors have saved – we are incredibly grateful for their ongoing support. Please do something amazing – give blood.”
Date: Sunday 17th November, 8.25 – 11.25am & 1 – 4pm
Location: Edgware Blood Centre, Edgware Community Hospital, Burnt Oak Broadway, Edgware, HA8 0AD
