Rockhampton residents urged to give blood this Christmas

ROCKHAMPTON Red Cross is calling on residents to give the most valuable gift of all this Christmas: their blood.

With more than 60 appointments available in the next three weeks, now has never been a better time to donate.

One in three Australians will need blood or blood products at some point in their life, but only one in 30 currently donate.

A donation takes only an hour of your time and directly helps to safe the lives of at least three of your fellow Australians.
