HUNTINGDONSHIRE people wishing to become blood donors can sign up at the five park and ride sites on the outskirts of Cambridge.

National Blood Service (NBS) drop boxes will be on display for two weeks, until Friday, September 21 in the waiting areas of each of the five Park and Ride sites.

The boxes are designed to encourage people to sign up to give blood by posting their contact details into the boxes.

Donors will then be contacted by the NBS with information about their local donation sessions.

Helen Green, Park and Ride marketing manager for Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Park and Ride is committed to giving back to the community we serve and we hope that by linking up with the National Blood Service we can help save lives."

Last year, Stagecoach and Park and Ride raised more than £43,000 for Cancer Research UK.
