The Crescents of Brisbane Team thanks all those who supported CBD'06

They Came, They Bled, and They Saved (three lives)

 

 

The inaugural Crescents Blood Drive was, by all accounts, a resounding success with over 180 turning up to the Kuraby Community Hall car park on Saturday 2 September 2006.

 

Minister of Health, Stephen Robertson and Minister of Police, Judy Spence, were among the many to put their weight behind the Crescents campaign, donating for the very first time.

 

Three large imposing Donor Vehicles were stationed in the car park throughout the day (one of which cost in excess of half a million dollars fitted).

 

Donors were handed personalized certificates of appreciation and there were random draw prizes  for nine lucky donors ranging from store gift vouchers, car washes (very handy during level three restrictions), coffee table books and complimentary tickets to Allah Made Me FunnyAnd while the sausages sizzled away in the background the CresWalk2006 video provided a nostalgic trip down memory lane for many.   

 

Crescents of Brisbane wishes to record its sincerest thanks to the Red Cross and the fantastic team of friendly nurses and coordinators. There were many who had donated for the very first time in their lives and the Red Cross team did a marvellous job to put them at ease.

 

Of course this initiative would not have been possible without the kindness and generosity of the CCN readers who put out their hands in support of the cause. A BIG THANK YOU to you all!
