More blood donors are needed in Norwich
People in Norwich are being asked to help boost blood stocks in the run-up to Mother's Day.
Donated blood can be used in a number of ways, including replacing blood-loss during surgery and also for mothers if they experience severe blood-loss during childbirth, for example if they haemorrhage.
Donation sessions will be taking place tomorrow at the St Andrews Centre in Brenda James Close, off Thunder Lane, in Thorpe St Andrew, and at an appointment-only bloodmobile at The Cottage pub car park in Thunder Lane, Thorpe St Andrew.
People will also be able to donate at Norwich High School for Girls, in Newmarket Road, Norwich, on Wednesday, February 23, and at the Top of the City venue in the Jarrold Stand at Norwich City Football Club's Carrow Road ground on Monday, February 28.
Anyone aged between 17 and 65, weighing more than 50kg (7st 12lb) and in general good health could potentially start saving lives by becoming a blood donor.
