MP backs Easter blood drive

Isis Town and Country - - News -

MEM­BER for Hin­kler Keith Pitt is urg­ing the com­mu­nity to do­nate blood in the lead-up to Easter.

Mr Pitt and two of his staff gave blood at Bund­aberg’s Red Cross Donor Cen­tre this week, largely be­cause Easter was of­ten a chal­leng­ing time on the roads for emer­gency ser­vice work­ers and blood sup­plies.

He said 81 more people were needed to fill spots at the Her­vey Bay and Bund­aberg cen­tres over the Easter weekend. To book, phone 131 495.
