Blood bus is back en route
BIGGENDEN residents have the opportunity to again donate blood after the Blood Bus to Maryborough was reinstated.
Last October the group was told they would only be able to donate blood during the day, on the first and third Saturday of the month.
But with a change of mind, the group will be heading off on Tuesday, February 5.
The free bus leaves the bus shelter outside the Biggenden State School inVictoria St at 4.30pm on the dot.

For many people donors are their lifeline. One in three Australians needs blood, yet only one in 30 donates.
Modern processing techniques mean that a single blood donation, when separated into its components, can help three patients.
Here is an example of how your donation helps:
A little girl named Ivy has an immune deficiency disorder and relies on blood donors.
Ivy’s disorder means her body can’t fight common infections but thanks to generous blood donors, Ivy receives immunoglobin every three weeks to keep healthy.
By becoming a blood donor, you could save people like Ivy.
So, please roll up your sleeves and give blood.
You never know when someone you love may need it.
