Take the Bloody Oath

by Brighton Council
Jen Butler MP giving blood

Here’s a reminder to all those eligible to give blood, to roll up your sleeve and donate! Jen Butler MP Labor Member for Lyons is a regular blood donor and she is helping Australia Red Cross in asking Tasmanians to roll up their sleeves and donate. There’s a nation-wide shortage of donated blood right now, and Tasmanian health services and the Australian Red Cross need help. A series of disasters across Australia have meant that blood is more precious than ever. COVID-19 has affected supply chain, staffing, and regular donors. The floods in New South Wales and Queensland have also impacted the blood supply.

The most pressing need is for A or O blood types, as they make up the majority of people in hospital who require donated blood. “One in three people will need donated blood in their lifetime. The person you are saving could be a friend, family member or loved one,” Ms Butler shared. “Take the Bloody Oath and give life. There is no better time than the present to roll up your sleeves and save lives.”
