Mayor encourages residents to give blood

A single blood donation can save up to three lives. That’s why City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour was happy to roll up his sleeves and give blood this month.

"With one in three Australians needing blood at some point in their lives, it’s important we do what we can to ensure there is enough," Mayor Asfour said.

"For that reason, I encourage everyone who can donate to start thinking about doing so on a regular basis.

"I understand, one in 30 Australians give blood each year but wouldn’t be great if, as a city, Canterbury-Bankstown can help lift that figure.

"It’s an unfortunate fact of life that something life-threatening can occur at any moment and we all would like to think there’s always enough blood if one of our loved ones is in need of it.

"If that happens, you, as well as your friends and family, will be counting on the blood donations of others."

Red Cross Blood Service NSW Manager, Steve Eldridge, said those who donated blood were lifesavers.

"Thank you to the Mayor for taking time out to give blood," he said.

"By donating blood, you are giving the gift of life, and I encourage all eligible donors to consider doing this when they can."
