Keighley blood donor trio honoured
9:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in Keighley
Three Keighley donors – who together have given blood hundreds of times – have been recognised for their efforts.
Marion Ackroyd, Glen Mahomet and Colin Stow were presented with crystal awards by NHS Blood and Transplant.
The trio were among about 50 donors from across Yorkshire to be rewarded.
Donna Batty, lead donor relations manager for NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “It is amazing to see the dedication of these long-standing donors.
“They are an inspiration to us all, and we hope others will follow in their footsteps to save and improve the lives of many people.
“New donors are always welcome.”
Anyone aged 17 to 65, weighing more than 50kg and in general good health, can become a donor.
