A blood donor from Aylesbury has been recognised for rolling up his sleeve to help save lives 75 times.
Bruno Pasqual was honoured at an awards event held by NHS Blood and Transplant at The Hilton London Green Park Hotel.
Mr Pasqual was joined by people from across Bucks, London, Middlesex, Herts and Beds, with 28 donors receiving crystal awards.
Dominic Sutherland, lead donor relations manager at NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “We would like to thank these donors for their commitment and dedication.
“They are an inspiration to us all and we hope that others will follow in their footsteps.
“If these donors have inspired you, please register to donate now, as we always need new donors.
“It is such a simple act, but can make a huge difference to someone in need.”
Anyone aged 17 to 65, weighing more than 50 kg and in general good health can become a blood donor. There is no upper age limit for people who have donated in the past two years.
