Drayton CBS blood donor drive misses target at July clinic

A total of 49 units were collected at a Canadian Blood Services (CBS) donor clinic in Drayton on July 27. The number is below the 58-unit target for the clinic.

“Alas – it is summer and it’s a hot one,” said CBS territory manager Sharr Cairns, noting anyone who missed the Drayton clinic could attend an upcoming clinic in Palmerston on Aug. 13 at the community centre from 5 to 8pm.

However, Cairns noted, anyone donating at the Palmerston clinic would not be eligible to do so at a clinic planned for Sept. 28 in Drayton.
