Did you know that 1 in 3 people from the Cricket ACT community will need blood in their lifetime? Or that only 1 in 30 Australians make life-giving donations?

Australia needs 25,000 blood donations every week. Around one-third of those go towards helping people with cancer, with the rest needed to treat immune conditions, pregnancy and childbirth complications, surgery, haemophilia, heart disease and more.

It is easy to become a life-saving donor…

You can chat with Jake this Saturday 11 May at Weston Indoor Sports to enrol to become a donor,
