When should I service my Kia Cee'd diesel?

How often should I get my diesel automobile serviced?  It's a 2007 Kia Cee'd 1.6 CRDi. I got it serviced in May this year. The garage recommends it gets servived every 10,000 km. I've now done 12,500 since last service. Theres 80,000km on clock. Money tight at the minute so wondering could I stretch it for another 2,000 km or so?
