Have your say

OCTOBER sessions for people to go along to and donate blood have now been announced.

NHS Blood and Transplant is encouraging people to come forward and donate blood.

Spokesman for the NHSBT John Canning said: ‘With the dark nights drawing in it can be tempting to stay indoors. We are urging donors to come forward this month to help maintain blood stocks.

‘If you are generally in good health you could potentially help to save up to three lives with every donation you give.

‘Colds and flu can have a knock-on effect with blood stocks, this is why we need people to act now.’

Sessions take place from 1.30pm to 3.25pm and 4.30pm to 7.30pm on:

· Monday, October 3, Moneyfields Sports and Social Club, Moneyfield Avenue, Copnor.

· Wednesday, October 5, Portchester Community Centre, Westlands Grove, Portchester.

· Thursday, October 6, Crofton Community Centre, Stubbington Lane, Stubbington.

· Friday, October 7, Community Centre, Wootton Street, Cosham.
