Blood donors

BOSTON Spa blood donors are being urged to keep their appointments during the summer holidays.

NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) has noticed an increase in donors not turning up for their appointments and the stocks can dip because of this.

They are urging donors who cannot attend to cancel bookings so that others may use them.

The next session in Boston Spa is on Wednesday August 17 from 2-4pm and 5-7.30pm in the Village Hall, High Street.
