First mobile plasma collection blood drive comes to Henderson

Tori Tokalau Reporter from Western Leader

Hi Neighbours,

West Auckland will host New Zealand's first ever mobile plasma blood drive this week at Henderson's Trusts Arena on October 19-23.

The blood drive is a push by New Zealand Blood Service to ramp up plasma donation accessibility around the country ahead of surging demand.

Henderson's event will allow 150 whole blood donors who meet the plasma eligibility criteria to donate at a mobile drive for the first time.

It will begin at 8am to 1.30pm and people can sign up to donate here: www.nzblood.co.nz...

I just bought a blackberry today!!!!!!!! πŸ˜ƒ No, NOT the electronic kind. =P

Sharon from Te Atatu South

No, it's a Blackberry Satin Thornless (as seen in photos 1 & 2) from Mitre Ten. πŸ˜ƒ Self-fertile, so you'll need only one for the bees to pollinate itself (using its own pollen!) and produce fruit. Fruit grows on second-year woody stem growth, so after two years, you should have fruit. I put compost in the bottom of the tub, strawberry mix in the top, mixed with sheep & chicken pellets and peat moss, dug a small hole in the middle, put a banana peel in the bottom, and then planted the blackberry plant in it (same as for the blueberries, except for the sheep & chicken pellets I used because Mitre Ten had sold out of straight sheep pellets. =P ) Snapdragons open (as in photo 3) in my garden recently, and two blooming gorgeous flowering cuttings in a vase (last three photos), that I cut off the cherry-ice-cream geraniums I had to cut away part of last week to make way for the yellow rose I bought to replace my old one that had died. πŸ˜ƒ
