AN APPEAL has been made in the run-up to the spring bank holidays, asking people to give blood.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is requesting people donate before they travel to help maintain blood stocks throughout the summer.

John Canning, lead donor relations manager for NHSBT, said: ‘We understand people’s routines change as they start to think about holidays and enjoying time away from their everyday lives to spend with family and friends, but we hope people will consider giving blood before they travel to help keep stocks stable throughout the summer months.’ Here are the dates, places and times to donate:

· Friday, May 3, Cosham Community Centre, Wootton Street, Cosham, from 1.30pm to 3.25pm and 4.30pm to 7.30pm.

· Monday, May 27, Portsmouth Football Club, Fratton Park, Fratton Way, Portsmouth, from 10am to 12.25pm and 1.45pm to 4.15pm.
