The best gift you could give this Christmas is LIFE.
1 in 3 Australians will need blood yet 1 in 30 donate.
Not only will you be helping a fellow human being at their most critical moment – but also everyone who loves them. Christmas time is crucial with emergency rooms full of patients during the holiday season.
So roll up your sleeves and give blood at the last Davies Park Market before Christmas. This Saturday December 22, the Blood Service mobile unit will be located on the corner of Montague road & Jane street from 7am-2pm.
Read on for all the details on what to do on the day. You can also help by pre-booking your place.
