Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell is urging us to give blood over the festive period.
Figures from NHS Blood and Transplant found there are only 1634 donors in the constituency, or just 1.5% of the population and more are needed.
Giving a pint in December is very helpful as stocks can run low over Christmas and the New Year.
“It’s really easy to book an appointment online and it takes half an hour to give a pint and it’s a great public service to perform,” said Caroline.
“But most importantly, the chances are your actions will save lives and that’s a great way to use 30 minutes of anyone’s time.”
