Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

BIGGEN­DEN res­i­dents are be­ing asked to sup­port the blood bus as it rolls around on Oc­to­ber 30.

It will be the town’s last night-time blood bus.

Michelle Kin­bacher said she was re­cently in­formed that as of next year the Biggen­den group could only do­nate blood dur­ing the day, on the first and third Satur­day of the month.

“This will re­ally af­fect us all as ev­ery­body works and it is a re­ally good so­cial night for us,” Mrs Kin­bacher said.

“So the 30th is our last night-time blood bus ever.

“We re­ally would like to get as many peo­ple on it as pos­si­ble to show the blood bank that the coun­try peo­ple can do it.”

Mrs Kin­bacher said a num­ber of peo­ple had al­ready in­di­cated they would be un­able to do­nate if the bus was to on- ly run on a Satur­day. The blood bus will leave the Biggen­den School at 5.15pm on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 30.

Do­na­tors are en­cour­aged to go along dressed to the Hal­loween theme.
