Power and Water Corporation were announced as the second largest blood donor group in the Northern Territory at the Australian Red Cross Blood Service annual breakfast.

Power and Water employees made 110 donations, which saved a total of 330 lives.

The Australian Red Cross Blood Service is uniting with organisations like Power and Water to form a powerful movement. RED25 is a program that aims to rally organisations and groups across the country to achieve 25 per cent of the blood donations needed by Australia.

Donated blood helps cancer patients, people undergoing surgery, pregnant women and babies. A single blood donation can help at least three patients. Currently, only one in 30 Australians gives blood, but one in three Australians will need blood in their lifetime.
