Congratulations to the 2016 winners!

Planning is already underway for 2017 but the dates are yet to be confirmed. Be sure to sign up to your council Red25 (if you aren’t already a member) to make sure you are included in the next challenge.

The challenge is over, but the need remains…

Although it’s fun to have a short competition, the need for blood is actually year-round. As a Red25 member, you can donate any time of the year and your donation will count towards your council’s annual tally. Not only that, but you’ll be part of Red25’s overall goal of making 25 per cent of all of Australia’s blood donations.

On behalf of all those who your donations help, thank you. Every single donation has changed lives.

Thank you again for rising to the challenge!
