A REMINDER has been sent to people to ensure they 
help keep donor blood stocks high.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is asking people in the Portsmouth area to donate.

John Canning, lead donor relations manager for NHSBT, said: ‘We’re asking people to spring into action this spring.

‘This time of year is important to give as stocks are often more vulnerable around public holidays, when people are busy getting out and about or going away for breaks.

‘Giving blood now and in the next few weeks will also help boost blood stocks before people turn their attention towards England in the football World Cup.’

Donations take place on:

n Monday at the Holiday Inn, Cartwright Drive, Titchfield, 10am to 2.30pm.

n Tuesday at Festival Hall, Heath Road, Petersfield, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, and 4.30pm to 7.30pm.

n Wednesday at Portsmouth Football Club, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm, and 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
