AN Ipswich man has become one of only three per cent of blood donors who achieve the milestone donation of 75 units.

The National Blood Service (NBS) will present Malcolm Hall of Rushmere St Andrew with a crystal plate on July 18 in recognition of his achievement.

Following a motorbike accident in which he and his fiancee were injured, Mr Hall has been donating blood for the last 33 years.

When asked if he had any advice for those thinking of becoming blood donors he said: "If I can do it you can do it too."

Mr Hall has blood which is especially good for treating babies and this provided an added incentive for him to donate.

Ruth Greenway, Communications Officer for East Anglia's National Blood Service, said: "This is an amazing story and shows the complete cycle of blood donation. The NBS would like to thank Mr Hall and I hope he continues with his lifesaving work."
