THE blood bank stocks are low and Red Cross is calling for Warwick people to roll up a sleeve next week.
Red Cross community relations officer Kirsten McGovern said the stocks always fell at this time of the year.
"At the moment the stocks are low because the regular donors are unable to give blood due to colds and flu," she said.
Stanthorpe resident Peter Wise used to be a regular blood donor.
"I can't give blood anymore because I had glandular fever," he said.
"I can't even remember my blood type anymore."
Ms McGovern said people did not need to know their blood type to donate.
"The common blood types of A and O are especially low," she said. "But we always need all types."
Ms McGovern said she hoped people would give.
"The appointment sessions are fully booked at the moment," she said.
But she said people did cancel and slots opened up.
"The attendance levels at the evening session have been dropping, so it would be great to see some people pop in after work," she said.
