Blood donation events across north Norfolk

Several events across north Norfolk next month will give people the chance to donate blood and save a life.

NHS Blood and Transplant is encouraging new and existing blood donors to come forward and take part.

Derek Carr, lead donor relations manager at the service, said: 'With this year's Royal Wedding taking place as well as the normal Easter holidays, we need to make sure blood stocks remain healthy over both bank holiday weekends.'

The service collects around two million units of blood a year and needs 7,000 daily donations.

The first event will take place on April 7 at St Andrew Methodist Church in Sheringham at 1pm, 3.15pm, 4.30pm and 7pm

Another will take place in Hoveton Village Hall on April 8 at 1pm, 3.15pm, 4.30pm and 7pm.

Stalham High School will host a collection on April 14 at 1pm, 3.15pm, 4.30pm and 7pm.
