Donating blood saves lives every day. It can be a lifeline to people receiving emergency health care, and for those going through long term treatments. Many people would not be alive today if donors had not generously given their blood.

You can give blood if you are:

• Generally fit and healthy

• Weigh over 50kg (7st 12lbs)

• Aged between 17-66 (or 70 if you have given blood before)

Your nearest donation centres are:

Joseph Chamberlain College
Balsall Heath
1 Belgrave Road
B12 9FF


Birmingham Donor Centre
65 New Street
Birmingham West Midlands
B2 4DU
