‘CHLOE’S CHALLENGE’ LAUNCHED TO ENCOURAGE MORE BLOOD DONATIONS

A young girl is challenging more Tamworth residents to roll up their sleeves for blood donations.

10-year-old Chloe Brown’s life was saved by transfusions when she was diagnosed with mastoiditis, five years ago.

Thankfully, she’s still here to share her story.

“It’s really important to me. It’s what keeps me alive most of the time.”

The brave youngster today launched her annual campaign ‘Chloe’s Challenge’.

Over the next few weeks, she’s hoping locals, young and old, will contribute to the cause.

Today, she stood by as her family made the initial donations.

“If you’ve done it before and it might be a few months or years since you’ve done it, book in, come on in. If you’ve never done it, maybe this is the time.”
