Of all the people needing blood at any given time, Group A will be needed by almost half of them. And because stocks only last a limited time, this makes it important that you continue to give on a regular basis.
We can guarantee that your blood will make an amazing difference. Whether it's used to treat patients in an emergency, in cancer treatments or to help a mother and baby in childbirth, it could be the difference between life and death.
You can give blood three times a year, so please be sure to keep up your outstanding work and donate every four months if you possibly can.
