THE NATIONAL Blood Service is calling on people to become donors in preparation of the winter period.

The service, part of NHS Blood and Transplant department, also want existing donors to give over the next few months.

A spokesperson for the department said: "People can't give blood when they have swine flu. We therefore need to build up supplies in preparation for the flu season.

"To do this we need to recruit many new donors and encourage existing ones to give over the next few months."

People can give blood at the Parish Church Hall, Withycombe Village Road, Exmouth, on Friday, August 28.

A drop-in clinic will be held between 2pm and 3.15pm and 5pm until 7.15pm.
