Support Christmas Blood donation appeal-Councillor Colly Kelly

Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has urged people in Derry to support the Christmas and New Year Blood donation appeal this week.be_a_star

 

 Councillor Colly Kelly said “I would urge as many people as possible to support this year’s blood transfusion campaign “Be a star for someone this Christmas”

You always think of patients needing blood transfusions in the event of road accidents but rarely do we  think of people with medical conditions needing  treatment all year around.

 

There is a lot of pressure place on the Blood Transfusion service. They have said  that the need for blood is constant, with 500 patients in the north needing transfusions each week, but at this time of year it can be particularly difficult to maintain their  blood stocks.

 

I would urge anyone who can help to go along to the Clooney Hall on the 5th December and the Bloodmobile at Rafters on the 18th December.
