Precious Supplies Donated
Posted on November 8th, 2018
RACQ CapRescue are proving they are dedicated to saving lives in more ways than one with the staff and crew signing on as the CapRescue Red25 team in the Australian Red Cross Blood Service.
Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service Media and Liaison Officer Gabrielle Holmes, says it’s just another way the service is saving lives, not just within Central Queensland but all of Australia.
“Being that a number of our staff and crew are already frequent donors, this is a great way for us to come together as a team and continue our life saving work, and hopefully encourage more people to become donors.”
Australian Red Cross Blood Service Community Relations Officer for Central Queensland Barry Lynch says it’s great to see a community organisation come on-board.
“We hear the chopper fly over our heads to the hospital helipad almost every day so we understand what a vital organisation it is to the community. It’s great having the crew come down to our Blood Centre to meet with our team to get a more in-depth look at the work we do here.”
Staff and crew from the Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service will be meeting with the team at the Red Cross Blood Centre on Tuesday November 6th at 11am, to get a further look into what’s involved with donating the precious supplies of blood and plasma.
