Giving blood is easy, it doesn’t take long to do and you can help save or improve up to three lives each time you donate. So what’s stopping you?

That's the message from NHS Blood and Transplant, which adds that it needs over 200,000 new people to register as donors this year.

Blood donors can now create their own personal account
which links to their existing blood donation records. This meant they can book, amend or cancel their own appointments online.

You can help the boost stocks of blood by becoming a donor if you are generally in good health, aged between 17 and 65 and weigh at least 7st 12lbs.

The next local sessions are at:

Hammersmith Town Hall, July 10 - 1pm - 3pm and 4.30pm - 7.30pm

White City Community Centre, July 23 - 1pm - 3pm and 4.30pm - 7.30pm
