Reading about the latest road crash that claimed the lives of five people from one family, drove home the importance of donating blood. But I didn’t know these people so as horrific as this accident is, there is still a sense of being removed from it.
But recently a very good friend of mine has been diagnosed with cancer, making it much more personal. It is hard to find the time and who really wants to get a needle – but how insignificant are these issues when compared to the fact that your donation could possibly save several lives?
The Red Cross Blood Bank always needs more donors – so why not grab a buddy, give the bank a call and book in (13 14 95) to save a life of two. And whilst there, give the staff at the Blood Bank a pat on the back. They do an amazing job and the volunteers are always there, rain, hail or shine.
