NHS Blood and Transplant is asking new and existing donors to give blood during a donor session in Hucknall on Sunday.

The event takes place between 9.30am to 12.30pm and 2pm to 4.30pm at The National Academy on Annesley Road.

The number of people donating blood often falls during the summer and this year’s football World Cup may present even more of a distraction.

Jon Latham, assistant director for donor services and marketing at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “While the overall need for blood within the NHS has been reducing, thanks to improvements in clinical practice and our work with hospitals, we still need more than 7,000 people to attend a blood donation session every day.”
