We all know Christmas is the time for giving. However, if you give blood, your gift is especially valuable when stocks of your blood group are low.

What’s more, we’ll be posting them again every week this December, to let you know how much of each blood type we currently have in stock.  We all know Christmas is the time for giving.  However, if you give blood, your gift is especially valuable when stocks of your blood group are low.

So, for instance, today we have really good stocks of most blood types, but we're running a bit low on O- and O+.  Therefore if you have O- or O+ blood, we’d love to see you.

Our bloodstocks are updated Monday to Friday, every single week of the year - to see what they are today, you can either scroll to the bottom of any page in our website, or look directly at our bloodstocks page.  Because bloodstocks are for life – not just Christmas.
