On behalf of Luton Mosques, we request your support in promoting an urgent appeal to encourage community members to give blood.

Recent bad weather led to the cancellation of some blood donation sessions and between 6-7,000 units of blood were lost as a result. This could take weeks to recover.

Blood stocks are currently at urgently low levels and there are still appointments to fill at Luton Blood Donor Centre, St Georges Square, Bridge, Street Luton Bedfordshire LU1 2NF. You can book online or call 0300 123 23 23. Current stocks of Group O (the universal blood type used in emergencies), Group B, and A positive blood are particularly low at the moment.

To check if you are eligible to give blood you can also take a quick test. We hope you can support us in this task by cascading this email to friends and colleagues. For more information visit www.blood.co.uk.
