There is an urgent need for more black and mixed heritage donors to treat people with sickle cell disease. Treatment is more effective when blood is received from someone with a close ethnic match.
Currently only 1% of people who donate blood are of black African or black Caribbean origin.
Most people can donate blood, including those with sickle cell trait. You can check your eligibility here: https://www.blood.co.uk/who-can-give-blood/
