Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) staff and elected officials are rolling up their sleeves to join the Australian Red Cross Blood Service Councils’ Challenge.
TRC People and Organisational Development portfolio leader Cr Megan O’Hara Sullivan yesterday answered the call to donate blood. TRC has tallied 11 donations in the opening days of the three-month Councils’ Challenge.
TRC Water and Waste Committee Chair Cr Nancy Sommerfield and Deputy Mayor and Infrastructure Services Committee chair Cr Carol Taylor yesterday booked donation appointments.
Cr O’Hara Sullivan said Council was pleased to continue its long-term support of the Australian Red Cross Blood Service by participating in the nation-wide Councils’ Challenge as well as throughout the year.
“The Challenge has a light-hearted competitive element in addition to its more serious work supporting people who depend on blood products daily,” Cr O’Hara Sullivan said.
