🐨🐰Glenmore Park is now home to western Sydney’s first dedicated treetop wildlife crossing structure! It was opened by Mulgoa state Liberal MP Tanya Davies this week on the corner of Bluestone Dr and Parakeet St. The crossing will give animals a safe passage to freely move across the tree canopy between the two reserves. Mulgoa Landcare collaborated with local agencies and partners to deliver the first ever treetop wildlife crossing in the region.
💉💉 Christmas and public holidays are a time when many regular donors take a break - yet the need for blood never stops. ❣️At risk are supplies of blood relied on by trauma and accident patients. 🌡
Pictured is Julie Barlow of Penrith who rolled up her sleeves and donated plasma for the first time recently. The Nepean Donor Centre is searching for 200 life-saving blood donors between December 24 and January 5.
With some parts of blood only having a shelf life of five days, a constant flow of donors is required. It only takes an hour of your time and you will help save up to three lives.
💉 To make a blood donation appointment call the Blood Service on 13 14 95 or book online at www.donateblood.com.au.
