FE logo_National Blood WeekHave you noticed that some letters have disappeared from various street signs and company logos around the country? If you look carefully, you will notice that the missing letters are all As, Bs and Os.

This is not by chance!

The missing letters represent three blood types A, B and O and they have disappeared as part of the NHS’s campaign #MissingType, running during National Blood Week (8-14 June). With the help of major companies, the NHS is trying to raise awareness of the low blood supplies and to encourage more people to donate. Apparently, the NHS is in need of 200,00 new donors this year to be able to keep up with the demand!
