Young Police roll up their sleeves to donate

Members of the Young Police will roll-up their sleeves to donate blood as part of the ‘Bleed4Blue’ campaign, on the Blood Mobile Unit when it visits Youngo on Friday, February 15.

The ‘Bleed4Blue’ campaign, in its second year, was a blood drive initially created for the policing community, as well as the general public, to give back following the stabbing of Detective Sergeant John Breda in February 2018.

Sergeant John Breda needed more than 44 bags of blood to save his life and whilst in recovery now and can’t donate himself, he is encouraging others to donate to make sure there is always enough blood when it is needed most.

With just less than one month left in this blood drive, it has already accumulated over 3,200 donations which has helped to save over 9,600 lives.

Visit www.donateblood.com.au or call 13 14 95 to find out more.
