Blood donor venue issue

UNCERTAINTY over the future of the Assembly Rooms has forced a vital life-saving scheme to go on the hunt for new premises.

Staff at NHS Blood and Transplant, which operates the blood donation service monthly from the site, do not know whether they can continue sessions at the site once ownership is transferred from Boston Borough Council.

A spokesman for the service said: “We would very much like to continue collecting blood donations in Boston and so we would appeal for any businesses or organisations which may be able to offer a venue to contact us. A potential venue would need a spacious main room with easy access and heating. Anyone who might be able to help should email joanne.steel@nhsbt.nhs.uk
