A RECRUITMENT roadshow is to visit Sunderland as it encourages more people to give blood.

National Blood Week starts today and will see the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) use the awareness drive to hit home the message people are needed to give blood to keep stocks up.

The demand for supplies are expected to rise by 30 per cent during the Olympics, with the Euros and Wimbledon also expected to push up a need for plenty of stock. Among the events being run across the country will be one in Sunderland city centre on Thursday from 10am to 4pm, where shoppers will be able to access more information.
