Only 60 Pints Of
Blood Donated
The bloodmobile visited Hert
ford this week, slopping at the
Hertford Baptist Church and
only 60 pints of blood was con
tributed. V
This is the lowest amount that
has been donated in some time
and falling short of the quota is
believed to have been caused by
the flu bug, which has been
lurking in the county.
