Call for all O Negative Blood Donors
Blood stocks for O Negative are critically low and we urgently need your support over the upcoming weeks.
Because O Negative donations are so important at present, we are also offering O Negative donors without an appointment to attend their local session at any time over the next few weeks. Please do check our website for details and walk in if you can.
