A charity that transports vital blood, samples, vaccines and breast milk to hospitals across the region is visiting Wisbech Tesco to raise awareness of its life saving work.
Serv Norfolk will be at the Cromwell Road store on Saturday November 21.
The charity is into its fourth year and plays a critical role in health care by transporting blood supplies to local and national hospitals.
Mallissa Russell, community champion, said: “This amazing voluntary organisation are hoping to attract more people that will be willing to help them carry out this essential service.”
Serv Norfolk is a registered charity run by local volunteers that transports blood, plasma, platelets, samples, vaccines, factor VIII, donor breast milk and any other urgently required medical items to hospitals.

The service runs at night, daytime weekends and bank holidays and is provided free of charge, which they say allows the NHS to divert funds where they are needed most.
SERV covers the South East of England and is run by dedicated volunteers who receive no financial compensation for their time or costs.
