Cash boost for free transport service
SHOPPERS have donated £250 to a charity which provides a free transport service for blood and breast milk supplies to hospitals.
Riders from the Derbyshire Blood Bikes visited Burton's Octagon Shopping Centre to talk to people about their work.
They also received a further £250 from Alan Riley, owner of store Riley and Sons. Peter Hardingham, centre manager at The Octagon, said: "It was fantastic to be able to support such a wonderful local charity.
"I would like to personally thank everyone who donated to such a worthy cause. In this economic climate, the amount raised really is a testament to the generous nature of the people of Burton."
