North Antrim MLA Daithí McKay has appealed to people to donate blood to help save lives.

The Sinn Féin health spokesperson said: “In the summer months there is traditionally a higher demand for blood donations.

“This year in particular the Blood Transfusion Service has made a specific appeal for donations of O and A negative blood types.

“Donating blood can literally save lives and I would encourage everyone who is able to give blood to go along to their local blood donation sessions and give the gift of life to someone else.”
