The Welsh Blood Service will be at Maesteg Sports Centre next week, to keep up the demand of supplying 450 donations a day to the hospitals in Wales. A single donation can be broken down into different components, so it can be used in various ways to help save lives.

Anyone aged between 17 and 66, who weighs over 7st 12lbs (50kg), who is healthy and not subject to certain medical exclusions can volunteer to become a blood donor.

You can book an appointment next Tuesday 20th March, by selecting a time slot here.
