A BLOOD donor session will be held in Morpeth tomorrow to boost stocks ahead of the double bank holiday.

The session will take place at Storey Park Community Centre from 1.30pm to 3.45pm, and from 4.30pm to 7pm.

NHS Blood and Transport Lead Donor Relations Manager Darren Bowen said: “With this year’s Royal Wedding taking place, as well as the normal Easter holidays, we need to make sure blood stocks remain healthy over both bank holiday weekends. So what better way to celebrate than by offering patients in local hospitals life-saving blood?”

Anyone aged over 17, weighing more than 50kg (7 stone 12lbs) and in general good health could become a donor.
