Additional calendar information

On 25 July – 1 August, Townsville City Council will be lighting up magenta for Donate Life Week.

For 10 years now, DonateLife Week has played a vital role in encouraging Australians to become registered organ and tissue donors. The aim is to inspire all Australians to make a real difference to the lives of others by registering and telling their family they want to be a donor.

Around 1,650 people are currently waitlisted for a transplant. A further 12,000 additional people are on dialysis and may benefit from a kidney transplant.
