Almost 200 blood donors needed in Gladstone

ONE in three of us will need blood sometime in our lives, but only 1 in 30 donate.

More than 1400 new donors will be needed in CQ this year to ensure we meet patient demand for blood products, and 115,000 nationally.

If you or someone you know would like to help, there are still 80 appointments available in Gladstone over the next three weeks.
