They’re after your blood
West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative have organised a charity football match in memory of their founder, Phil Welsh.
Phil passed away two years ago this month.
To honour his memory, the group he pioneered will host the game in aid of the Phil Welsh Welfare Fund on Sunday, August 9 from 4pm till 6pm.
The event, which takes place at the Toryglen Regional Football Centre, will include beat the goalie, a raffle and drinks and snacks.
Tickets are £ 5 for adults and £2 for children and are available from the WWHC offices. Blood donors are wanted in Rutherglen, Cambuslang and Croftfoot.
On Tuesday, August 11, the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service will make a return to the Cambuslang Institute, Greenlees Road, from 2pm to 3.45pm and 5.15pm to 7.30pm.
They will be back at Rutherglen Town Hall on November 3, from 2-3.45pm and from 5.15-7.30pm.
Then on December 3 they will visit the Croftfoot Parish Church hall, at 318 Croftpark Avenue, from 4-7.30pm.
The service will make a final collection of the year in Cambuslang on December 23.
Donors can give blood every 12 weeks, about every three months or four times in a 12- month period.
Most people are able to give blood. As long as you are fit and healthy, weigh over seven stones 12lbs ( 50kg) and are aged between 17 and 66 (up to 70 years if you have given blood before) you should be able to give blood.
