Tertiary Blood Challenge 2019

1 March - 31 May

Seeing red about the state of the world? Put your hand up to help. Give blood. 


We rallied, we took action, and we made a difference. The 2019 Tertiary Blood Challenge has come to an end, we can be proud of what we’ve started.

Thank you to everyone who demonstrated what we can achieve when we come together for a common cause. By putting your hands up to help, you helped people by giving 16,471 donations, changing up to 49,413 lives.

Change only happens when we all take part but it wouldn’t be a competition without official winners! See who pinched the titles this year.
