STICKERS are to adorn ambulances across East Anglia, in a bid to encourage more people to give blood.
The East Anglian Ambulance Trust and National Blood Service have teamed up to raise awareness of the life-saving work they both do.
The stickers on the back doors of 150 emergency ambulances, officer cars, and rapid response cars will carry a phone number and the line: "Do something amazing –give blood."
They will also appear on 100 patient transport vehicles.
Paul Henry, assistant director of operations for EAAT said: "We attend thousands of road accidents a year and part of our job is to get those people to hospital as quickly as we can.

- 4 First look inside Ipswich's new Tim Hortons ahead of opening
- 5 ‘I’ve got no life’ - Ipswich woman's agony as she waits for operation

"But without adequate supplies of blood at hospitals to support our work, our efforts would sometimes be in vain.
"We would ask everyone to think that by giving blood three times a year, they could be helping to save someone else's life and to remember that one day it could be them relying on somebody else's generosity."
Donors should be 17-60 and weigh over 7 stone 12 lbs.
