Canadian Blood Services is reminding donors and potential donors in Victoria of the importance of booking an appointment to give blood right away and that clinics are open over the holidays.

The winter months come with the added challenges inclement weather creates. As a result of poor weather across the country, Canadian Blood Services has had to cancel a number of clinics and also seen a decline in the number of donors able to attend clinics.

Victoria residents can donate blood at the following clinics: Victoria blood donor clinic at 3449 Saanich Rd. and on Dec. 26, from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Church of the Advent, 510 Mount View Ave.
