The Wineries Blood Challenge

The Wineries Blood Challenge

Every day, there are people in hospital who need blood for cancer treatment, surgery, emergencies and obstetrics. The charity Lifeblood needs 33,000 donations of blood every week to meet the needs of these Australian patients.

Blood challenges are a fantastic way of boosting blood donations and really making a difference. The Wineries Blood Challenge – which runs until 31 January 2022 – will see wineries from across the country compete to save more than 1800 lives.

Lifeblood would like to thank all of the wonderful donors that have signed up to this challenge so far, including the team from Tamburlaine, who recently joined the challenge for the first time.

“We are thrilled to be involved in such a fantastic initiative. We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from the team and a large number of people rolling up their sleeves for the cause," said Phoenix Kamsteeg, Millthorpe Cellar Door Manager.

So if you and your colleagues (or even a couple of wineries together in your region?) would like a positive team-building exercise and a way to have a massive impact on someone else's life, at a time when many things are outside of our control, then create a Lifeblood Team and sign up today!
