Join Corporate Blood Drive by August 31

August 12, 2022 | 0 Comments

Bermuda companies and organisations still have a chance to join the tenth Corporate Blood Drive, with the deadline for signing on August 31.

A Bermuda Hospitals Board spokesperson said, “Bermuda companies and organisations still have a chance to join the tenth Corporate Blood Drive, with the deadline for signing up 31 August 2022. Any company interested in joining should email blood.donor@bhb.bm or call 236-5067.”

Lucy Correia, nurse phlebotomist at the Bermuda Blood Donor Centre, said, “This is a special tenth anniversary for the Corporate Blood Drive.

“This competition has made such a big difference to people in Bermuda who need transfusions. Companies who sign up have helped sustain our blood donor pool in Bermuda, whether they won the competition or not. All our blood is from local donors and when companies join the competition they are supporting their existing donors, and helping encourage new people to consider donating.

“One of our regular donors Janice Richards, who won the blood donor Hamilton Princess raffle this year, has been donating for many years – but it all started with an email in her workplace that was encouraged people to donate because the hospital was in need. This is the difference employers can make.

“This is our tenth competition so we are going to make it special, and we hope companies who have previously participated as well as new companies will consider joining in. While there will be a winner announced in June 2023, in this competition every company, every donation makes a big difference.

“Even just participating helps encourage blood donation so please consider joining. For the more serious competitors, having blood drives, promotions and encouraging friends, family and even visiting consultants to donate with a focus on getting as high as possible in the competition listing, can make it fun.

“Plus, there is nothing more rewarding knowing you are saving lives. Give us a call or email, and we can sign you up.”
