2023 Local Government Blood Drive

Giving blood has got to be one of the most rewarding things you can do to help another person — there’s no other feeling like it. Donated blood can be used in many life-giving ways. The person receiving it could have cancer, be going through a difficult pregnancy, or they could be someone who relies on regular transfusions to live a healthy, happy life — or even to live. Australian Red Cross Lifeblood will be in Anna St, Beaudesert on these dates: 

  • Wednesday 5 July 9am – 2pm 

  • Thursday 6 July, 1pm – 6pm 

  • Friday 7 July, 8am – 1pm 

If you would like to donate blood, you can find more information and documents here.
