Canadian Blood Services honoured the late Penny Lett recently for her dedication to donating blood 125 times before she passed away earlier this year.

On July 8, Arleen Asi and Nancy Bryan of CBS presented Lett’s husband, Brian Snook, with a 125th donation pin and certificate in honour of his late wife and former Progress reporter during the first day of a memorial blood drive at Broadway Church.

The In Memory of Penny Lett blood drive runs throughout the months of July and August in Chilliwack and the goal is to collect 125 units of blood for the 2013 calendar year through CBS’s Partners For Life Program.

To donate blood you must make an appointment by calling 1-888-2DONATE, and to make your donation count towards the Penny Lett blood drive, sign up online at www.blood.ca/partnersforlife and use Partner ID #INME013882.

The local clinic is in need of donors for its Monday, Aug. 5 clinic, which falls on the B.C. Day long weekend.
