HAVING donated his 100th pint of blood, Nigel Teasdale could have have helped save hundreds of lives.

The dad-of-of one from Hull Road started donating blood in 1981 after learning about it from a work colleague and this month donated his 100th pint at a session at New Earswick Folk Hall.

His efforts could have helped save the lives of as many as 300 people.

Mr Teasdale, 50, who works for Nestlé, is encouraging people to give up a small amount of their time to donate blood.

He said: “When you donate blood, you save three lives every time and it takes just five minutes. The blood service needs 200,000 new donors a year.”
