Cairns blood donors save 260k+ lives


More than 260,000 lives have been saved by Cairns Lifeblood over the past decade.

The donor centre celebrated ten years since opening it's doors this week, Friday October 16, with 86,000 blood and plasma donations over the decade.

Lifeblood spokesperson Jacinta Jeffrey said she wasn’t surprised by the locals’ support of the Cairns Donor Centre.

“Cairns donors have really gotten behind the Cairns Donor Centre over the last decade and their support has been nothing short of extraordinary.”

“To think that our donors have saved over 260,000 lives is just amazing.”
