Bloody lovely

This Valen­tine’s Day, the New Zealand Blood Ser­vice is invit­ing peo­ple to find out if they are the

per­fect match for some­one other than their part­ner – some­one in need of do­nated blood. “In ad­di­tion to be­ing your part­ner’s ‘type’, you may

also be the per­fect match for some­one in need of do­nated blood,” says Paul Hayes, NZ Blood Ser­vice. “All do­nated blood is pre­cious, but each blood type has its own spe­cial set of qual­i­ties that mean it may be able to be used in spe­cial­ist treat­ments or to

make blood-de­rived medicines.”

To make an ap­point­ment to do­nate with your part­ner or friends for Valen­tine’s Day, phone 0800 GIVE BLOOD.
