The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) will have a special blood donation clinic planned for the long weekend, to give the organisation’s supplies a boost.
The boost is necessary since colds and the flu are keeping away many regular donors from donating. Also, the blood usage has increased which made it difficult for the WPBTS to stay on target.
The clinic will take place on Saturday the 22nd of September at the Cavendish shopping centre and the lower ground event room, between 10am and 2.15pm.
"Donors are more then welcome to attend. They must be older than 17years, weigh more than 50kg and live a save and healthy lifestyle. They must also remember to eat before attending the clinic," says Lynn Erasmus of the WPBTS.
