Blood donor plea

8th May 2012

The Welsh Blood Service has made an urgent appeal for more blood donors to come forward after officials warned that some areas had only four days supply of blood.

Tracy Sampson from the service said: "Over the holidays, a lot of our donors are often thinking about other things, and might skip a donation session. That is what we have seen over the Easter period. Donors haven't come forward. Then we are straight into another bank holiday weekend. The thing is, hospitals don't take a holiday, and we still need blood donations to make sure patients can get the treatment they need. So we would really encourage old and new donors to come forward. There has never been a better time to think about it."
