An Easter Reminder
Amy reminded me tonight that she has booked to donate blood again this week, so I thought it was the perfect time to remind everyone else as well.
Easter is an extremely busy time for the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. Lots of regular donors go away on holidays, and there are many more accidents on our roads. Each week, more than 27.000 donations are required to help patients in need.
You can read about why I need donated blood here.
Check the Easter opening hours here.
Although you can book online, this only allows you to book for an appointment in six days time. If you wish to donate prior to Easter, please call 131495.
PS - The ARCBS has many more permanent donation centres running recently, so it's definitely worth checking whether there is a new one near you!
