#1143 ... Essential Service

You may look at today's photo and think what?, boring, uninteresting ... well this team are part of a very essential service in the capital city and in many other places around NZ. This team is setting up for the day to receive blood from valued donors .. and unlike many places around the world we do not get paid for donating blood ... it is voluntary. Wellington has a permanent blood donor centre, however the teams, like this one, take the mountain to Mohammad and set up their equipment in vacant office space around the city. I personally have given lots of blood but thankfully never needed to get any back. although members of my family have and I am very thankful for the service the Blood Donor Service provides. I will go to these "blood suckers" any day. WELL DONE TEAM
