The Trauma Care International Foundation is today organising a Voluntary Blood Donation drives, marking the World Blood Donor Day, which is today 14th June 2019.
The World Blood Donor Day is a global UN campaign aimed at highlighting the issues surrounding blood donation.
World Blood Donor Day has been celebrated on the same day every year since it was established in 2004, encouraging people worldwide to give blood.
Just 1 pint of blood can help save 3 lives. There are 1.3 million registered voluntary blood donors in England and Wales, and every day in England, around 8,000 blood transfusions are carried out.
The Trauma Care International has the Guinness World Records for the most people to sign up to donate blood in 8 hours.
