MANY people take it for granted that blood is something we expect to be available for us when we need it yet only four percent of people actually give blood.

There are hundreds of thousands of people, some of who you probably know who would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the generosity of blood donors, so why not make it your news resolution to give blood in 2014.

Most of us can give blood, but all donors have to meet the eligibility criteria before their blood is accepted to ensure there’s no risk of harm, to you or the patients who receive it.

If you’ve never given blood before Donation Sessions are very relaxed and friendly events which happen regularly at local venues such as community centres and village halls where you can usually walk in or make an appointment online or by calling the Helpline on Tel. 0300 123 23 23.

Locally there are four Blood Giving Sessions taking place in the next couple of months.

Blythe Village Hall in Uttoxeter Road, Blythe Bridge, will be hosting a session on Sunday 19th January in which appointments can be made or members of the public wishing to donate can just walk in. The session will be open from 10am until 12.30pm then again at 2pm until 4pm.

Great Wood Hall in Hollington Road, Upper Tean, will be hosting a session on Monday 3rd February, in which appointments can be made or members of the public wishing to donate can just walk in. The sessions will be open from 1pm to 3.30pm and then again from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.

Moorside High School in Cellarhead Road, Werrington, will be hosting two sessions on Monday 17th February, and Tuesday 18th February in which appointments can be made or members of the public wishing to donate can just walk in. The session on Monday 17th will be open from 2pm to 4pm and then again from 5pm to 7.30pm as will the session on Tuesday 18th.

Meir Park Community Hall in Lysander Road, Meir Park, will be hosting a session on Thursday 20th February, in which appointments can be made or members of the public wishing to donate can just walk in.

The sessions will be open from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and then again from 4.30pm to 7.30pm.
