A new campaign is being launched to encourage young black Londoners to give blood and save lives. Currently half the country's black population lives in the country- and NHS Blood and Transport wants to recruit 7000 new black donors by 2020.
The black community makes up around 5% of the UK population - with about half living in London - but active black donors currently account for only 1% of blood donors. *
·NHSBT collects 1.8 million units of blood each year from over 23,000 blood donation sessions in more than 3,000 venues
Rarer blood groupsinclude B+, Ro and RoR which are more common and more in-demand among black communities.
Female blood donors can give blood every 16 weeks, while male blood donors must wait 12 weeks between donations. Platelets can be donated every 2 weeks.
