Sunday blood donor clinic honours fallen firefighter

Seventh annual clinic being held at Langley City Fire Hall

On the heels of Thanksgiving, Langley City Fire Rescue will join Canadian Blood Services at the Langley City Fire Hall for the seventh annual blood donor clinic in memory of fallen firefighter, Ron Dunkley.

The clinic is open to the public. Langley City firefighters will thank donors and remind people to take the time to give life by donating blood.

All blood types help meet patients’ needs but right now there is critical need for O-negative blood donors. Whether you have donated before or it’s been a while, hospital patients are counting on the public’s support.

The clinic happens this Sunday, Oct. 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the fire hall, apparatus floor, 5785 203 St.
