The National Blood Transfusion Service has said that it is appropriate in November to remember those blood donors who are no longer with us, and the many, many people who are still alive thanks to their donations.
With this in mind, this Sunday the National Blood Transfusion Service is encouraging people to attend a blood donation session in Nadur, on Sunday, the 5th of November from 8:00am and 1:00pm at the Parish Centre next the Nadur parish church, in collaboration with the Nadur Teen and Youth Centre.
The Service is inviting members of the public to donate blood next Tuesday the 7th of November, during a session taking place at the Gozo General Hospital between 1:00pm and 5:00pm, in the Outpatients Department. “If possible please also encourage others to attend and donate as well.”
The Service is reminding everyone that it is important to always take their Identity Card, or Driving License or Maltese Passport and to drink plenty of water beforehand.
