    Posted: 03áMarchá2009 at 9:30am
As I am sure many of you are aware, Dave Looby's son has leukemia.
Many of you will be wanting to do something for the family at this time and Dave has mentioned that the best possible thing that people could do for Daniel (and many others in similar situations) is to GIVE BLOOD.

I appreciate that many of you may not be able to do this for a number of reasons, but if you can, would you seriously consider doing this.
The process is a virtually painless one (far less so than some of the injuries lads get week in, week out playing football) and will take roughly 30-45 minutes of your time. For those of you who may find it difficult to make it during the opening hours, ask in work as many employers will allow you time off work to donate blood.

The next available time and venue to give blood locally is next Tuesday at the Civic Hall in Waterloo. Please try and get down there to donate.

Here are a list of venues and dates in the local area where you can donate blood.

VENUE                                                             NEXT DATE
Crosby, St. Luke's Church Hall
3 day(s)
22/4/2009
Netherton, St. Oswalds Parish Hall
2 day(s)
14/4/2009
Litherland, Cathy Roberts Memorial Hall
1 day(s)
1/7/2009
Crosby, Crosby Civic Hall
1 day(s)
10/3/2009
Maghull, Town Hall
1 day(s)
8/7/2009
Maghull, St Georges Social Centre
1 day(s)
27/5/2009
Aintree, Methodist Church Hall
3 day(s)
8/4/2009
Bootle, Bootle Town Hall
1 day(s)
24/3/2009
Liverpool, Goodison Park
2 day(s)
6/5/2009
KIRKBY, KIRKBY SUITE
4 day(s)
3/3/2009

Further information about giving blood can be found on their website

One last thing, If you do decide to give blood, can you please try and make it a reguar thing and not just a one off. I know it can be difficult to make it and it may not be at the forefront of your mind, but donating blood matters.

Cheers

Si

Thanks Si, this is fantastic.
Can I be really cheeky and also ask that you try and donate platelets?
Here is an extract taken from their website

As you know, there is always an urgent need for whole blood; but you may not be aware that there is always the same need for platelets as well - every bit as urgent. At the moment we really need more platelets. We need both whole blood and platelets and our platelet contributions can only come from existing donors like you.

Most platelet donations are given to patients who are unable to make enough platelets in their bone marrow. For example, patients with leukaemia or other cancers may have too few platelets as the result of their disease or treatment.

Thanks folks...
