City aims to retain Tri Cities title

Categories:

As 2017 community and corporate champions of the Tri Cities Blood Challenge, the City is rising to the challenge of saving lives through community blood donations in 2018.

“The City was proud to be the Tri Cities champions in both the community and corporate challenges in 2017, which is testament to the generosity of our local community and City staff,” said Mayor Albert Jacob.

Mayor Jacob encourages community members to donate blood and play a part in helping save someone’s life.

The Tri Cities Blood Challenge runs from 1 July to 30 September 2018 and involves the communities of Joondalup, Wanneroo and Stirling. The aim of the challenge is to boost blood stocks during winter months when many regular donors become impacted by cold and flus and defer their donations.

Further information on the Tri Cities Blood Challenge and on how to become a donor is available on the Australian Red Cross website.
