Urgent call for blood donors to roll up sleeves in CQ

THE Red Cross Blood Service is urging people in Rockhampton and Gladstone to pick up the phone and make an appointment to donate blood this month.

There are currently over 130 appointments available in Gladstone over the next three weeks, and more than 80 in Rockhampton. 

One in three of us will need blood or blood products at some point in our lives, but only one in 30 currently donate. Therefore the need for donations, and in particular new donors, does remain high in order to meet patient demand.

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