LOGAN proved it is filled with generosity after donating the most blood in this year's national Battle of the Burbs blood challenge.

Run by the Australian Red Cross, the challenge pitted suburb against suburb during the month of April to help replenish vital blood stocks.

Tanah Merah was crowned the overall winner of the challenge with more than 5% of their residents donating.

Rochedale came in second place with more than 3.58% donating, followed closely by Springwood and Chatswood Hills in third place with 3.54%.

Berrinba came in sixth place with 2.16%.

The Daisy Hill and Priestdale area was placed ninth with 2.08% and Cornubia rounded off the top 10 with 2.04% of their residents donating.

Australian Red Cross community relations officer Leslie Heagney said she was thrilled with all of the results from everyone who participated.

"Congratulations to Logan," she said.

"Residents have embraced this campaign and the proof is in the blood bag.

"Congratulations particularly to the residents of Tanah Merah as you have earned the Battle of the Burbs titles with your valuable blood donations.

"Thankyou to all donors who have visited us during this campaign because you have helped save many lives."

Other suburbs to be placed in the top 10 included Joyner, Petrie, Albany Creek and Bunya.

Currently, one in three people will need blood during their life time.

Currently, there is a shortage of O negative blood stocks in Australia.

If you would like to donate blood, contact the Australian Red Cross on 13 14 95 or visit www.donateblood.com.au.
