Sooke hosts blood donor clinic

The Sooke clinic runs from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 26

Sooke will host a mobile blood donor clinic on Monday (Sept. 26).

Every 56 days in Sooke, Canadian Blood Services positions it’s mobile clinic at the Royal Canadian Legion, 6726 Eustace Rd.

Recently, B.C. hospitals experienced a supply shortage of blood prompting broadcasts to request donors to give and asking others to join the movement, said Robin Fleming, Canadian Blood Services volunteer team leader in Sooke.

The Sooke clinic runs from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

To book an appointment or more information, please go online to blood.ca or call toll-free 1-888-236-6283.
