World Blood Donor Day 14 June 2021 – Army Campaign


The Army is supporting the NHS to increase the number of new blood donors through a partnership that will run to World Blood Donor Day on 14 Jun 21. Blood must be used within 35 days of a donation so it’s important to run this over a longer period and help close the NHS deficit of 4000 donors.

Every type of blood is important and will help to save a life. If you are Regular or Reserve, an MOD employee or family member, your contribution matters. Please check if you can give blood then register with your regional blood and transplant services:

England - NHSBT
Scotland - SCOTBLOOD
Wales - Welsh BTS
Northern Ireland - NIBTS

When you have registered fill in our short survey so we can count your contribution towards the 4000 target.

The NHS needs more male, black heritage and universal donors, so if you fall into one of these categories you are likely to be fast tracked.

Some donor venues have more capacity than donors and need our help – check in to one of these locations
Bexley Heath - East
Birmingham - West
WEDC/Bloomsbury - East
Edgware - East
Manchester - North
Liverpool – North
Luton – East
Stratford – East
Twickenham - East
