Blood, sweat and tea.

AN elderly couple who have helped out at blood donor sessions in Nuneaton for the past eight years were given an affectionate farewell by the Blood Service last week.

Reg Turner, aged 83 and his wife Gwen, aged 81, have been the friendly faces providing tea and coffee for people after they have given blood.

But now they have decided to call it a day, Gwen says not much has changed.

She said: "We've got the decorators in this week so we're still doing tea and coffee!"

The couple were presented with flowers and whiskey tumblers engraved with the Blood Donors logo.

Reg said: "It was decided we'd been doing it for long enough."
