SPAIN has come sixth in a global ranking of blood donations as data showed they save an average of 80 people a day.
The latest blood donation index also found the average Spanish donor is male and aged between 31 and 40.
Male blood donors are not permitted to give blood more than four times a year while the limit for women is three times. Pregnant women are advised to wait six months after giving birth before donating.
British residents in Spain can also donate. People who lived in Britain between 1980 and 1996 are prohibited due to the mad cow disease outbreak which took place at that time.
