LEYTHERS are being given the chance to do something extraordinary and give blood.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) are running extra blood donor sessions this month to tie in with the leap year.

The NHSBT team will visit Atherton’s Formby Hall, on Alder Street, on Wednesday, February 8, and St Joseph’s Church, on Chapel Street in Leigh, on Thursday, February 16.

Both sessions will run from 1.15 to 3.30pm and 5 until 7.30pm.

Donors should be aged between 17 and 65, weigh at least 50 kg (7 stone 12lbs) and be in general good health.
