She said: "The good weather, lockdown easing and the school holidays, mean we really need donors with the blood group A and O. Please make a special effort to keep your appointment, and let us know if you need to cancel. If you’ve never given blood before, or haven’t for a while, now’s the time to donate."

Gillian added that the NHS need at least 125 donors on the day to help sustain blood stock supplies to its hospitals.

The two blood donation sessions are at Wick Assembly Rooms on Wednesday, August 4 at 2.40pm to 4.30pm and 5.30pm to 7.10pm.
