Loyal I.T. is busy saving lives

Posted by Michael Trimblett on 27 February 2017

Late last year the team rolled up their sleeves and gave blood again.  Well, most of us did.  Unfortunately, Michael Trimblett was denied the ability to give blood this time.  No, it's not what you're thinking.  That's right, it was to do with some risky out-of-hours activities that left him with sores on his knees.  Before you jump to any conclusions, it was from playing Soccer 5's as goal keeper.  The wound was so innocuous it was nearly not mentioned on the screener form.  Luckily it was and the woman performing screening assessed it as too much of a risk for those requiring the blood.  As we would go on to learn, any form of infection that could be carried by blood, no matter how small, could have harmful effects on those receiving the blood.  This is why you must declare anything and everything that may cause ill-effects, not matter how small.

Naomi and Michael Goodwin (those who actually gave blood this time), were joined by a newcomer from the Loyal I.T. office, Brendan Lewis.  Hats off to everyone who gave up their blood and to Mick and Julie Goodwin for allowing our team the time to give back to the community.
