Blood donations needed

The Irish Blood Transfusion Service (IBTS) is asking donors to make special efforts to give blood after clinics were disrupted by recent bad weather.

As well as its normal schedule this week, the IBTS will operate 4 extra clinics on Sunday 11 March. It aims to collect 7,000 donations by St Patrick’s weekend.
