Kadina will host the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood Mobile Donor Centre this week. From today (April 6) to Friday (April 9), blood donations can be made at the Copper Coast Sport & Leisure Centre on Doswell Terrace.

Red Cross Lifeblood have put out an urgent call for blood supplies from the community, particularly those with blood Type O, which is routinely in short supply and in high demand by hospitals – both because it is the most common blood type and because type O negative blood is the universal blood type needed for emergency transfusions and for immune deficient infants.

Unfortunately, statistics have shown that donor numbers are on the decline, while demand is on the way up.

See if you're eligible to donate, and make an appointment, here.
