You don't need to go to the stars and back to be a hero this Christmas, just escape the hustle and bustle of shopping by attending one of our blood donation sessions. 500 patients in Northern Ireland need blood each week but it can be difficult to maintain good stocks at this time of year, so we really need your continued support. Just giving up less than an hour of your time could change someone's life and make you a star in their eyes. Please try to attend one of our donation sessions and encourage a friend or family member to come along as well.
