Australian Red Cross Blood Bank Visit

After the recent visit from the Australian Red Cross Blood Service to De La Salle College, we received the following letter from them:

The Blood Service’s visit to De La Salle College on 28 August was another great visit as we managed to collect 42 units of whole blood and had 43 volunteers pass through the unit on the day.

For this visit we had a target to collect 40+ units of blood, so your result was very pleasing and all your volunteers should be thanked and congratulated for their efforts. With every donation having the potential to save 3 lives, these 42 units donated have the potential to save up to 126 lives so on behalf of all potential recipients of this blood I say ‘thank you’.

Thank you to everyone who donated and especially to Mr Kevin Hunter for his ongoing organisation of these visits.
