Town: Peacehaven
Phone: 0300 123 23 23

There is a need to make sure that there are enough supplies of all blood groups and blood types to treat all types of conditions.

By giving blood, every donor helps to meet the challenge of providing life-saving products whenever and wherever they are needed.

A regular supply of all blood groups and types is needed so it can be provided to the hospitals and patients who need it. Some rare sub-types are more common in Black communities, which is why more blood donors from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities are needed.

Sometimes there is a need to target specific blood types to increase stock levels. That's why regular donors with the particular blood type needed are sometimes contacted and asked to give blood.

The service is indebted to regular blood donors for their role in helping to save lives.

A comedy starring Rory Kinnear as Marx and Oliver Chris as Engels.

Europe's most feared terrorist is hiding in Soho.
Broke, restless and horny, the 32-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit and emotional illiteracy.
Never mind that his enemies are everywhere, Karl Heinrich Marx knows how to party.
No wonder Engels is in despair.
