Mr Gee, from Overstrand, has received an award for donating blood 100 times.

The retired marine engineer has helped save hundreds of lives since the late 1960s.

He was presented with a plaque and medal by the NHS Blood and Transplant Service and attended a ceremony with other donors at Norwich City Football Club.

Mr Gee, who celebrates his 71st birthday this week, said: 'I started giving blood to help people and save the lives of everyone to children to OAPS.'
