The NHS Blood and Transplant campaign is calling for new blood donors
As, Bs and Os - the letters of the main blood groups - are disappearing this week
Well isn’t someone eagle-eyed! Yes, you’ve quite rightly noticed that there’s something missing from our logos today – an A and an O.
That’s because we’re supporting the Missing Type campaign, which is taking place across 21 different countries, including the UK and Ireland, this week.
The idea is to remove the letters of the three main blood types (A, O, B) from iconic locations to encourage new blood donor registrations.
In England, there is a particular need for more black and Asian donors, and more young people generally – while O negative and A negative blood is in particularly high demand.
Spokesman P ddy P wer said: “Giving up a little piece of yourself – like me with my name this week – can make a huge difference to others.
“At P ddy P wer, we’re proud to be supporting the Missing Type campaign.”
