People in Norfolk are being called on to give blood during February to stop supplies running low.
Donated blood is used not only in accident and emergency situations but also for patients undergoing surgery and receiving treatment for cancer and blood diseases.
Currently 7,000 units of blood are needed everyday to help save the lives of sick and injured patients across England and North Wales yet only four percent of the eligible population give blood.
To ensure a continued sufficient supply of blood it is vital that both regular and new blood donors come forward.
You may also want to watch:
Anyone aged between 17and 65, weighing more than 50 kg (7 stone 12lbs) and in general good health could potentially start saving lives by becoming a blood donor.
There is no upper age limit for donors who have donated in the last two years. To book an appointment call the donor line on 0300 123 23 23 or visit www.blood.co.uk
