The Dubbo Blood Donation Centre is seeking 24 donors this week.
The centre are 24 donations short of what is needed to support patients in need around the region. In Particular Wednesday and Friday’s are of main concern.
The centre said it was vital these appointments are filled to ensure blood supplies are maintained.
