Blood donation session cancellations due to heavy snow

As a result of the bad weather, some blood donation sessions for Sunday 3rd February have been cancelled, and Oxford Donor Centre has temporarily closed.

3 February 2019

Thank you to everyone giving blood during the wintry weather this week! Most of our sessions are open so please give blood if you can. A few sessions have been cancelled. We’re texting affected donors but please check ahead if you are not sure.

Due to heavy snowfall, icy conditions and out of concern for donor safety the following blood donation session for Sunday 3rd February has been cancelled:


  • Indoor Bowling Club, Abbey Rd, Pity ME, Durham

10:35 - 12:30 and

14:00 - 16:10



Help us to beat the bad weather

We are very sorry if your blood donation has been cancelled. We try very hard to avoid shutting our donation centres or turning donors away. Your donations are incredibly important to hospital patients and we're working to get as many blood sessions running as possible. 

You can help us to continue providing much needed blood to hospitals by booking an appointment, even if your session is some months away. The constant need for blood means that your donation will help to prevent any further drop in blood stocks.
