Appeal for Teri blood donors

TERIES are being urged to give blood next weekend when the donor service arrives in Hawick.

Townsfolk are invited to go along to the high school sessions over two days, from 10.15am until 12.30pm, and 2pm-6pm next Sunday (August 14), or the following day (August 15) from 2pm-6pm, then 5.15pm to 7.15pm.

A spokesperson for the blood donor service said: “During the holiday season our session attendances can fall by up to 20 per cent as everyone is enjoying their well earned summer break, the feel good factor. Giving blood is a feel good factor, come along and try it. New and regular donors are always welcome.”
