The gift only you can give
In November and December 2014 we ran a campaign to encourage people to give the gift of blood for Christmas.
Providing a life-saving blood service doesn’t stop over Christmas and New Year.
Over the festive season over 200,000 whole blood donors and 12,500 platelet donations were needed to make sure the hospitals of England and North Wales had the stocks they need to treat patients.
The campaign successfully raised awareness of the need for donations and we were able to continue providing the blood and platelets patients needed throughout the festive season.
