Blood donor sessions

The New Year is traditionally when resolutions are made. People vow to do better - but why not choose to be a blood donor in 2015?

NHS Blood and Transplant is asking people to consider giving up an hour to donate blood. With each blood donation potentially saving or improving up to three lives, this can help more people than the average resolution.

You can give blood at St Augustines Church Hall, St Augustine’s Close, off Cooden Drive, on Friday January 16 and Friday January 30, then Friday May 22 and Friday June 19; all dates have sessions from 1.30-4pm and then from 5-7.30pm.

They will also be held at St Peters Community Centre, Church Street. in Bexhill Old Town, on Friday February 13, Friday April 24, and Friday May 8, with sessions again from 1.30-4pm and again from 5-7.30pm.
