Which local council will be the best blood donors?

Local councils already make a huge difference to our community.  Now, here's your chance to make an even bigger one – by giving blood and saving lives.

Between 1 April and 30 June the Australian Red Cross Blood Service's group donation program, Red 25, is inviting local councils across Australia to join the inaugural Red25 Councils Blood Challenge.

During the challenge, councils will compete to see who can make the most blood donations in their state or territory.                                                                                    

To have your donations count towards your council's tally, join Red25 and start donating. If your council doesn't already have a Red25 group, register one!
