Two Canadian Blood Services clinics in Brandon next month


Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - The Canadian Blood Services is asking Brandon residents to give blood at one of their clinics next month.

Circle your December 13th and 27th on your calendar.

Mobile clinics will be set up at the Keystone Centre's UCT Pavilion from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on each of those dates.

There is a 50% chance you or someone you know will need blood at some point in their life.

Steve Raizen territory manager with CBS urges people especially donors who haven't stopped in to a clinic in awhile to plan on joining their efforts to build up a surplus.

However Raizen does have a friendly reminder for those who choose to donate.

"Men are eligible to donate every 56 days and women are eligible to give blood every 84 days," Raizen said.

CBS is hoping to fill 150 appointments in Brandon next month.
