The Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service is looking for donors at sessions in Bishopbriggs.

The mobile donating team will be at Cadder Freestone Social Club in St Mungo Street on Monday, January 5, from 2-3.45pm and 5.15-7.30pm. The next day, Tuesday, January 6, they will be there from 4pm to 7.30pm.

A spokesman for the service said: ‘‘We urgently need to attract more new and returning blood donors. Only five per cent of the eligible population currently give blood. Every day we need to welcome 1000 blood donors in Scotland. We need more new volunteers to ensure that we continue to meet hospital requirements for blood and blood products.’’
