Did you know one blood donation can save up to three lives?
Australian Red Cross Lifeblood Lismore is an essential community service that was lost during the recent flood events. While the Conway Street donation centre is being rebuilt, the Lifeblood mobile unit will be visiting Lismore once a month for the next three months. This is a great opportunity for local residents to get back to donating blood.
The mobile unit will be at Southern Cross University on:
- 12 – 13 July
- 18 – 19 August
- 16 – 17 September
Donating is safe, easy and life changing!
How much blood do you give when you donate?
470ml. It’s about 8% of the average adult’s blood volume. Within 24-48 hours of donating, your body will have fully restored your blood volume.
How long does it take to donate?
10 minutes. But allow for an hour for the whole appointment, which includes meeting with a friendly staff member before your donation and having a complimentary snack and drink after.
How often can I give blood?
Every 12 weeks. If you’re keen to donate more often, you can give plasma every two weeks.
