Gozo blood donation opportunity and health awareness day
|Email item||Print item||
The Blood Donation Area at Gozo General Hospital is going to be open this coming Sunday, the 6th of May, from 8.30am till 1.00pm for those who wish to make a blood donation and do not have the opportunity to do so during the week.
Blood donation is sometimes taken for granted or ignored.
The more blood donors the better. When donating blood people are helping others and having the chance to help save lives.
It is important that anyone wishing to donate blood should take their ID card with them.
Also on Sunday between 10 am and 6 pm there will be an opportunity to have tests for blood sugar, blood pressure and a weight check. These tests will be carried out by a group of nursing students, who will also be able to provide information on weight reduction.
This health awareness opportunity is taking place at the Gozo Stadium in Xewkija, in conjunction with the Gozo Football Marathon 2012, which is being organised by the Puttinu Cares Gozo Committee in aid of Puttinu Cares, the organisation which helps children who are suffering from cancer, as well as their families.
