Blood recipients get gift of life

EACH and every person in Gladstone could potentially need the gift of blood one day.

In order to ensure local blood stocks are maintained The Ob- server is running Target 500, a campaign aimed at collecting 500 blood donations between now and the end of the year.

We will target local business- es, asking them to encourage staff to get behind the cause.

The Observer will also run photos of some of the business- es which donate, as well as a list of those supporting Target 500.

The first day of the cam- paign, yesterday, the Gladstone Blood Bank collected 17 dona- tions, after a day of phone calls asking for donations.

To make a booking phone the Gladstone Blood Bank on 4976 3276.
