‘We need 17,500 people to donate blood this week’

An escalating cold and flu season has hit local blood supplies.

The Australian Red Cross Lifeblood is seeing up to half of all appointments cancelled and has put out a call for more people to step forward and donate blood.

The organisation is pleading with anyone who is well to book a donation today and encourage friends and family to do the same.

Book your blood donation today.
