This winter, the Canadian Blood Services is reminding people that it doesn’t really matter “because, you’re the type to save a life.”

Approximately every minute of every day, someone in Canada needs blood, according to Canadian Blood Services. In fact, according to a recent poll, 52 per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have needed blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment.

The good news is one blood donation can save a life.

This week, Ladysmith residents will have a chance to help save lives, as Canadian Blood Services is holding a blood donor clinic Thursday (Feb. 23) from 1-7:45 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church (1135 Fourth Ave.).
