Bloody good for blood bank
MORE than 500 blood donations were provided during the recent visit to Echuca by the Australian Red Cross Blood Service’s travelling donormobile.
Blood Service spokesman Colin Littlejohn thanked the 506 donors for their generosi- ty, which he said saved 1518 lives.
Mr Littlejohn also encouraged people to donate next time the blood donormobile visited Echuca from January 15 to February 9 — and spread the message to family and friends.
‘‘One in three Australians will need blood or a blood product in their lifetime, but only one in 30 currently donates,’’ he said.
