Blood Donor Centre Rolling through the Region this Christmas

blood.JPGThe Red Cross Blood Service is calling for more locals to roll up their sleeves as the Mobile Blood Donor Centre rolls through the region next week.

The Red Cross is looking for people to donate blood in the lead-up to Christmas for Australia’s biggest ‘Secret Santa’ exchange.

Adverse weather conditions in New South Wales and Queensland have impacted blood collections leading to an appeal for people of all blood types to donate blood across the country.

Blood Service spokesperson Jessica Willet says blood will be needed by road accident patients, pregnant mums, cancer patients and premature babies every day this Christmas and New Year’s.
