DEDICATED blood donors from Mansfield, who have given blood more than a thousand times between them, have been recognised for helping to save lives

Brothers, James (69) and Peter Whitehead (65), were among 12 people presented with a crystal award after reaching the milestone of 75 donations.

Retired engineer James said: “I first attended with other family members. Knowing I was helping someone in trouble kept me giving. For a little time and effort you can make a big difference to someone’s health and life in times of need.”

The donors were honoured at a recent awards ceremony held by NHS Blood and Transplant.

Holly Mason, lead donor relations manager with NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “The dedication of all these donors is wonderful.”

Upcoming sessions are at Mansfield Civic Centre on 3rd and 23rd April. Book by calling 0300 123 23 23.
