National Blood Donor Week

For those who give life

Thank you(s) aren’t enough to express our gratitude for all that our blood donors do, which is why we’ve introduced a whole week of celebrating them!

Each year, around World Blood Donor Day on 14 June, Lifeblood is proud to host National Blood Donor Week — it’s our way of recognising the impact and importance of our wonderful donors.

National Blood Donor Week 2024

This year, we are celebrating the incredible sense of community our donors have created. Each one of them has made an impact by giving life and together, they make up a life-saving tapestry that shows us we can really make a difference when we come together.
