Council staff save hundreds of lives

Ipswich City Council staff have saved 375 lives through donations in the RED25 Councils Blood Challenge.

Staff gave a total of 125 donations to the Red Cross over the past three months to help those in need, including blood, plasma and platelets.

Ipswich City Council finished in eighth place against hundreds of other councils across Australia.

CEO David Farmer was one of dozens of staff who rolled up his sleeve to take part in the challenge.

“It’s a small way of giving back to the community and I’m thrilled that so many of our council’s employees have stepped up to the challenge to donate,” Mr Farmer said.

“Whether you’re donating blood or plasma, you never know who you could help, or when those close to you could need that help.”

Visit the Red Cross Ipswich Donor Centre or call 13 14 95 to make your appointment to donate and save a life.
