ITV2’s Love Island have teamed up with the NHS to encourage young people to give blood with the return of The Blood Squad.
The Blood Squad first appeared last year and saw a huge increase in people signing up to give blood. More than 31,000 people signed up to be blood donors which was a 19% increase on the previous year. Following the success, they return this year, coinciding, of course, with Halloween.

Mike Stredder, Director of Blood Donation at NHS Blood and Transplant says: “We need 400 people to register as new donors every day to maintain the blood supply, for the best chance of keeping patients alive. For many reasons it’s vital that young people continue to register and donate – particularly young men – not least because older people become less likely to be able to donate blood. Please do something amazing and book an appointment to start saving lives, especially if you live or work near to one of our donor centres.”
