Donation with a twist

The club regularly donates (items in need) to the community, but on 20 June 2016, it was a donation unlike any other. Some of the club member gave up a weekend of quality training to donate blood – the simplest reason: to help save the lives of patients in need of blood transfusions.

Just knowing that one unit of blood can save up to three lives is a rewarding enough feeling. Every unit of blood once tested and is deemed safe for transfusion is separated into, red blood cells, platelets and Plasma.
