Dates of blood donation sessions in the Vale


If giving is in your blood, please help

Support your local Welsh Blood Service donation sessions in these unprecedented times to continue the vital supply of platelets and blood products.
Your regular place of donation may no longer be available as the Welsh Blood Service has set up regional donation hubs. You might, therefore, have to travel further than normal. The Welsh Government has agreed that travelling to donate blood is classed as essential travel.
