Local residents are being urged to roll up their sleeves and give blood while the Australian Red Cross Mudgee Mobile Donor Centre is in town this week.
The Donor Mobile will be located at 86 Market Street from1.45pm to 7pm today and from 8am until 2pm tomorrow.
You can also catch the Donor Mobile next Monday 10 July from 1.45pm to 7pm and Tuesday 11 July from 8am to 4pm.
By giving up about an hour of your day, you could potentially help save up to 3 lives.
Blood donations are always needed. Some people need blood to help them get through serious events in their lives, like cancer or a dangerous pregnancy, while other have medical conditions that require ongoing blood products so they can stay alive or be healthy.
Statistics show that about one in three people will need blood in their lifetime and yet just one in 30 people donate.
Everyone who is eligible to give blood can help turn this statistic around by visiting the Donor Mobile this week or next.
