SDLP Councillor Brian Tierney has encouraged people to donate blood.
This week the NI Blood Transfusion service will be in Derry’s Guildhall between 1:30-4:00 pm and 5:15-8:00 pm.
Said Councillor Tierney: “This is a great opportunity for the community in Derry to donate blood and I would encourage as many people as possible to come along.
“One donation of blood can save the lives of 3 people and with 115 new blood donors needed each week, it is vital that everyone plays their part.
Councillor Tierney, who will be donating blood himself, added: “You never know how soon someone may need a blood donation; it could even be your own family member who is in urgent need of a donation.
“The Derry public are known for their generosity and I hope they get behind this appeal.”
