Make a de­posit at blood bank

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

They say money makes the world go around, but it’s blood that keeps peo­ple go­ing around.

So if you’re up for a cuppa, a bikkie and a lit­tle rest, con­sider do­nat­ing blood when the Blood Ser­vice vis­its Puck­a­pun­yal at the end of the month.

Peo­ple of all walks of life need blood prod­ucts.

Some need it to get them through a se­ri­ous event in their lives, like can­cer or a dan­ger­ous preg­nancy.

Oth­ers have med­i­cal con­di­tions which mean they need blood prod­ucts reg­u­larly to stay alive or be healthy.

Peo­ple who are in good health and aged be­tween 16 and 70 can gen­er­ally do­nate blood, with some ex­cep­tions such as women who have re­cently given birth or in­tra­venous drug users.

A sim­ple on­line ques­tion­naire will clar­ify your el­i­gi­bil­ity.

The Blood Ser­vice’s mobile donor cen­tre will be at Guard House Carpark, 10 Blamey Ave, Puck­a­pun­yal. Ap­point­ments are avail­able each day of the week Mon­day, Jan­uary 30 to Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 2.
