OK, so while most people don't like to give blood and it is something you can do all over the countryside.... It is something you can do in Newcastle too so it's made my '100 things to do in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie' list.
Did you know that just one donation can save three lives?
I'm a late starter to donating but so far I've given to save 12 lives and that's kinda neat! I only wish I had started donating earlier!!
I would encourage those who have never donated to give and for those who have given previously to keep giving.
Donate Blood by contacting Australian Red Cross Blood Service. I made my donation at the Watt Street Newcastle Centre today but you can give at any one of the 54 locations in Newcastle.
Give the gift of life and donate blood.
