BUCKINGHAM: Give a very special Christmas gift by donating blood on Friday.
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is asking people to think of those hospital patients who need blood transfusions during the festive period.
NHSBT is aiming to recruit 100,000 new donors in 100 days this winter to protect future blood stocks.
This year, there has been a dramatic decline in the number of younger donors signing up.
Donor sessions are taking place at Buckingham Community Centre from 12.45 to 3.15pm and 4.30pm to 7.15pm on Friday.
