MAKE 2020 the year you become a regular blood donor.

And you can start as early as next week.

The Australian Red Cross Mobile Blood Donor Centre will visit Morisset from Tuesday, January 14, until Friday, January 17.

It will set up in the grounds of Morisset Multipurpose Centre, on Dora Street, opposite the former golf course.

Donors have fully booked the Tuesday session.

But there are vacancies for donors to fill on each of the other days.

The donor mobile will be operating from 1pm to 6pm on Wednesday, January 15 (when 14 more donors are needed), and from 1pm to 6pm on Thursday, January 16 (when 12 more donors are needed).

On Friday, January 17, the donor mobile will be open from 10am to 3pm (when 14 more donors are needed).

If you haven't already made an appointment to give blood, you can book a donation online or call 131 495.

The Red Cross says one in three Australians will need blood in their lifetime, but only one in 30 donates.

"Donated blood helps cancer patients, people with blood disorders, mothers-to-be and newborn babies, as well as trauma and surgical patients," a Red Cross spokesperson said.
