Seven city blood donors were given a special award for giving 75 pints of blood each.

Dudley James from Great Linford, Bruce Bridges, Jackie Southgate and Derek Puddifoot from Stony Stratford, Jill Buckle from Broughton and Russell Fordham from Castlethorpe and Patricia Saunders from Bletchley were all rewarded.

Russell said: “I started giving blood as a student because I believed that it was extremely important to help save lives and assist people undergoing operations.”
