Blood donor clinic planned in Palmerston on July 14

PALMERSTON – Canadian Blood Services has issued an appeal for area residents to attend an upcoming donor clinic in Palmerston.

“The need continues for new and returning donors to replenish the blood supply as our national blood inventory has declined 25% since April following an increase in appointment cancellations and low attendance at donor centres across Canada combined with the constant need for blood,” Canadian Blood Services states in an email.

A donor clinic is set for July 14 from 1:30 to 6:30pm at the Palmerston Community Centre.

Donation is by appointment only. To book an appointment call 1-888-2 DONATE (1-888-236-6283) or go to
