The number of young people giving blood in the Advertiser and Review region is below the national average.

NHS Blood and Transplant has released figures at the start of National Blood Week which shows the number of people aged between 19 and 24 who have given blood over the past two years is less than the England and Wales average of 14 per cent.

In Aylesbury Vale, 646 young people, 12.5 per cent, have given blood in the past 24 months, while in south Northants, 353, 11.8 per cent have given blood.
