Victorian cities and towns have been asked to show their community pride and volunteer spirit by giving blood in a bid to be named the most generous donors.

All donations to Australian Red Cross Blood Service from March 19 to the end of April will count towards their postcode’s total and help save lives.

Warrnambool City mayor Jacinta Ermacora issued the challenge to residents yesterday, claiming the city’s sense of volunteerism was strong enough to be named “the heart of Victoria”.

“Giving blood is a great way individuals can help our whole community and help our health professionals provide lifesaving health care to patients who need it,” Cr Ermacora said.

“Warrnambool is the best-kept secret in Victoria and although we are a smaller city than some of our competitors, we have a strong rate of volunteerism so I believe we can prove we are the ‘heart of Victoria’.

“We’ve already got a strong proportion of people donating blood, which reflects our above-average volunteerism.

“It’s a little nerve-racking to donate for the first time but the staff here are very friendly, relaxing and professional and they know what they’re doing.”

Each year, more than 1.4 million blood donations are used in Australia to save the lives of people with cancer, heart, stomach and bowel disease, accident or trauma victims, pregnant mothers and newborn babies.

Although statistics show one in three people will need blood in their lifetime, only one in 30 people regularly donate.
