Donors our Lifeblood

Mercury (Hobart) - - LETTERS -

THE next time you do­nate at the Ho­bart Donor Cen­tre, you might no­tice things look slightly dif­fer­ent as we change our name to Aus­tralian Red Cross Lifeblood. We’re now do­ing more than ever before to help Aus­tralian pa­tients, whether through blood, plasma or platelet do­na­tions, through our donor breast­milk ser­vice for pre­ma­ture ba­bies, or­gan match­ing ser­vices, or world-renowned re­search. While our name is chang­ing, the friendly faces at the donor cen­tre are not, with Maria and the team look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing even more lo­cals. I thank ev­ery one of our Ho­bart donors, past and present, for their in­cred­i­ble gen­eros­ity over the years.

Your do­na­tions have helped count­less Aus­tralians, whether it be mums ex­pe­ri­enc­ing com­pli­ca­tions dur­ing child­birth, those un­der­go­ing treat­ment for cancer, those in­volved in road ac­ci­dents and count­less oth­ers across the na­tion. For 90 years we have been the lifeblood of Aus­tralia thanks to our gen­er­ous donors, and we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to play a vi­tal role in the com­mu­nity as Lifeblood.
