Every week Australian Red Cross Lifeblood needs to collect 33,000 donations to be able to support those in need.
These donations are used to support patients through their cancer treatments or a difficult pregnancy, during surgery or in an emergency. Others have medical conditions which mean they need blood products regularly to stay healthy.
The Bundoora donor centre will be open throughout the holiday period (except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day) to take collections from the community. Appointments are still available in the lead up to Christmas, with many more available in the new year.
The need for blood never takes a holiday. Over the holidays, give the Gift of Life, give blood. To book an appointment call 13 14 95 or visit www.lifeblood.com.au
