roll up your sleeves and give blood

4 July 2018

Central Queenslanders are being urged to roll up their sleeves and give blood.

The Australian Red Cross blood service are desperate for O-negative donations to get through winter and emergencies with 40 needed to get stock back to a non-critical level.

Regional communications manager  Belinda Smetioukh says it's down to the last two days of stock for most places, "There's been an increase in demand for O-Negative blood and that's also combined with a drop off in numbers due to the cold and flu that people are having, they aren't able to donate. So we are needing people to get on board."
