Bay is leading Borough in blood drive - but only just
THE Borough v The Bay Blood Drive is heating up, but first-time donor and Hervey Bay resident Catherine Stead says it wasn't a case of town pride that got her to finally roll up the sleeve.
"A friend has been trying to get me to donate blood for years," she said.
"I thought it would take longer and be more of a hassle but it really wasn't."
Latest figures show that Hervey Bay is in the lead, hitting 12% of donations needed, while Maryborough sits close behind at 11%.
