Make your challenge more meaningful. Save a Life.
Over 25% of us require blood at least once in our lifetime. However only 4% of adults are currently donors. All Edinburgh Napier students and staff are encouraged to join ENSA’s campaign and make a pledge or donation.
Once you’ve pledged/donated, tag a post online with #DareToDonate and challenge your friends to do the same. We’ll have a ‘Dare to Donate’ sign at the Blood Centre so you can take a photo when making your donation and help to spread the message!
You can check if you are able to donate at www.blood.co.uk. Those of you who are unable to donate can still take part in the campaign and sign our pledge cards to state that you would give blood if NHS regulations didn't prevent you from doing so. You can also have your photo taken with our "I cant' but you can" sign for challenging your friends on social media.
WHERE TO DONATE:
- Edinburgh Blood Centre (41 Lauriston Place, EH3 9HB): Monthly donation days will be arranged specifically for Edinburgh Napier students/staff.
- Sighthill Campus: Monday 29th May, room OC19 - Simulation & Clinical Skills Centre. 9:10-11:15am and 1:30-3:40pm.
An online schedule will be available soon to allow you to book a donation slot. Watch this space for more details.
