People urged to give blood

Every minute of every day someone in Scotland receives blood as part of a life-saving or life-enhancing treatment. But only five per cent of the population are active blood donors.

The Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) would like to invite you to your local blood donating session in Bearsden Cross Public Hall, Drymen Road on Thursday, July 30 from 2pm to 3.45pm and 5.15pm to 7.30pm.

The blood transfusion service needs 5,000 blood donors every week to meet the needs’ of patients in Scotland. For more information visit
