Staff step up to make blood gift



OBSERVER staff have stepped up to the challenge of helping save lives by donating blood.

Yesterday staff from The Ob- server issued their challenge to other businesses to donate blood when they visited the Blood Bank.

The challenge is part of The Ob- server's Blood Bank appeal ? Tar- get 500.

Target 500 aims to collect 500 blood donations from residents, businesses and industry through to the end of December.

Observer reporter Kelli Dow- ney was a first-time donor yes- terday.

"It was really quite easy,'' Kelli said.

"I must admit that I was a little bit nervous but it's really nothing to be frightened of.''

Every year local blood supplies become a desperate commodity, but through our Target 500 cam- paign local residents can make a difference.

During the campaign Gladstone Blood Service centre manager Bronwyn Sears said she could arrange a special time for any groups of eight or more people.

To make a booking phone 4976 3276 or phone The Observer on 4970 3030 for more details.

The Observer will keep a run- ning total of donations on the front page each day.

You can make a difference.
