With thousands of cancer patients receiving blood transfusions every year, NHS Blood and Transplant is challenging people to make a date to donate to mark this year’s World Cancer Day.
On February 4, people from around the world will join together to dispel the myths around cancer for World Cancer Day and as part of that, the Village Hotel at Capitol Boulevard, Tingley will be holding sessions from 2pm-4pm and 5pm-7.30pm on Monday, February 3.
Donna Batty from NHS Blood and Transplant said: “World Cancer Day is a good time to remember that blood is not only given in accident and emergency situations but also for patients undergoing surgery and receiving treatment for cancer and blood diseases. I would encourage both new and returning donors to make a date to roll up their sleeve and donate.”
