The 2019 donation results for PHRUFC’s Lifeblood Team – Rugby Vs Leukaemia.
In 2019 our group registered 98 donations (27 blood donations and 71 plasma donations), enough blood to help save 294 lives. These 98 donations were made by 24 unique donors (18 males and 6 females) with 12 of them being first-time blood donors. Not a bad result.
These donations were made at the following locations:

From our 24 donors, only 1 has joined the ABMDR. To join the Australian Bone Marrow Registry individuals need to be aged between 18 – 45years old. The Strength to Give programme focusses on Males 18-30 and this is an area we need to concentrate on. Ten of our donors were too old to join, however, that does leave 14 members eligible to register. Something to keep working on in 2020, particularly as we now have the swab kits.
