Celebrating the personal stories behind blood donation and transfusion during National Blood Week 2019

Every donor has a reason why they give blood. It could be because a friend or relative needed a transfusion, to help others or they simply love the feeling of doing something amazing.A mum and dad talk to their young daughter who's in a hospital bed

Similarly, everyone who has received blood has their own story. They might have needed a transfusion after an accident or childbirth, to help them recover from cancer or to treat a blood disorder.

During National Blood Week 2019 we celebrated the personal stories behind blood donation and transfusion.

We arranged some special, one-off meetings between donors and the people who received their blood. 

Watch the emotional meetings and see how giving blood can help save and improve lives.
