The staff at Madderns who donated blood as part of the Legal Services Blood Challenge in 2020 deserve a pat on the back, after the firm finished second for having the highest number of donors in South Australia.
A team of 10 from Madderns donated blood as part of the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood drive, including two new donors in 2020. Many others supported the team.
Nationally, 983 donations were made during the challenge, saving up to 2,949 lives. Without ambassadors such as Madderns, seriously ill patients would miss out on the life-saving blood treatments they need.
While the Legal Services Challenge has finished for the year, the Red Cross still needs help to encourage anyone who is feeling well to come forward and donate blood, with thousands of donors needed over the coming weeks to prevent a shortage. Each donation can save up to three lives.
There are several donation centres across South Australia, including eight in the city. To find out more, click here https://www.donateblood.com.au/
