The Red Cross Blood Service says they will need around 2,000 people to roll up their sleeves.

Spokeswoman Jemma Faulkenmire says even though people might be enjoying a break, the need for blood doesn’t stop.

“We see a spike in the demand for blood from hospitals.

“We see a significant drop off in the number of people donating bloody which makes it tricky for us.”
