If 2022 is the year you are planning to make big changes or give back in some way, why not think about donating blood, which can help save or improve the lives of up to three people at the blood donor outlet at The Centre, Livingston.
The state-of-the-art, warm and welcoming site at the shopping centre, is the first to be opened by The Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) in nearly 60 years, outwith Scotland’s five cities - Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.
The aim is to collect 35 donations per day to save or improve the lives of up to 630 patients in Scotland every week.
Whether you’re a first timer, a regular or maybe you’ve not been along for a while to donate, you’ll always be well looked after by the fantastic team onsite – and you get a well-earned soft drink and a biscuit afterwards as a big thank you!
Scheduling your appointment has never been easier with the SNBTS online booking system available at www.scotblood.co.uk or by contacting the donor hotline at 0345 90 90 999.
Alternatively, next time you’re shopping or grabbing a bite to eat at The Centre, why not pop by and check out their availability, as last minute cancellations can often mean free spots become available throughout the day! It’s situated next door to Holland & Barrett and just along from Wilko.
Give them a call or go online and book your donation today!
