A dedicated blood donor from Twickenham was recognised at an awards event held last month.

Frances Hollis, 70, received a crystal award at the event held by NHS Blood and Transplant at the Hilton in London on December 6.

Along with 27 other recipients across London, Mrs Hollis received the award to mark her reaching a landmark 75 blood donations.

Dominic Sutherland, lead donor relations manager at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “We would like to thank these donors for their commitment and dedication.

“They are an inspiration to us all and we hope that others will follow in their footsteps.

“If these donors have inspired you, please register to donate now, as we always need new donors.”
