Desperate call for blood donations

AN URGENT call for blood donations has gone out across the Fraser Coast with 3000 donations needed statewide during the next two weeks.

“Because many registered donors go away on holidays, supplies of invaluable cells contained in blood called platelets drop off, so we urgently need people to come in and donate blood,” Blood Service Community Relations Officer Duncan Birt said.

Around Christmas and new year the Australian Blood Service needs donations of type-O and type-A as stocks of these drop drastically, especially the supply of precious platelets.
