For the eighth consecutive year, KCGM staff will roll up their sleeves to help the Australian Red Cross as part of their 2013 blood challenge.
Staff have made 350 blood donations and helped more than 1050 people since the challenge began.
In a bid to boost participation, every donation will be recorded, with staff going into the draw for an additional week of annual leave.
KCGM general manager Russell Cole said the challenge was a great way for staff to get involved in the community.
He said the 2012 challenge resulted in 69 blood donations over the 12 months, with staff members Linda Richards and Carrie Flanagan rewarded for their ongoing generosity. “Donating blood is one of the best ways we can help fellow community members and by running this challenge KCGM is encouraging all staff to donate to the Red Cross,” he said.
Australian Red Cross community relations officer Leah Gorman praised KCGM for their huge commitment to saving lives.
“Every week Australia needs more than 27,000 blood donations to meet demand,” she said.
