Both the Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt MP and the Shadow Minister for Health, the Hon Chris Bowen MP rolled up their sleeves to promote Australian Red Cross Lifeblood.
‘It’s about helping to save lives and protect lives. It’s about supporting our health system and supporting other Australians,’ said Mr Hunt.
Both the Minister and Shadow Minister donated blood as part of the Red Cross appeal, demonstrating that the campaign was supported by the government and the opposition.
Mr Bowen said, ‘We might not agree on everything, but there’s no arguing that blood saves lives.’
