The Louis Trichardt branch of the SA National Blood Service (SANBS) is organising a special festive day on 11 September to highlight the importance of donating blood regularly.
According to Alan Maswime, the provincial co-ordinator of the event, several hampers will be given away during the event and lots of festivities are planned. The local branch is also organising a “Jail & Bail”, during which prominent personalities will be “jailed” until such time as friends and family can come up with the “bail”, which will be measured in blood in this case.
Alan said that the need for blood was increasing in the country and they continuously had to recruit new donors. They would like people with type O-blood to become donors, as this type of blood can be used for all patients. “But any type of blood will help,” he said. The local SANBS branch is situated at 27 Erasmus Street.
