MEDICS are celebrating six months of carrying blood supplies with a special drive for donations.

Essex and Herts Air Ambulance now carry blood on their helicopters and rapid response vehicles.

Staff, volunteers and supporters will be giving blood to help provide the potentially life-saving intervention at the JobServe Community Stadium on Sunday.

Some 22 patients have received transfusions from the charity's critical care team since they began stocking blood in April.

Anyone who wants to donate at the session between 10am and 2pm should register at or use the blood donor app.
