Blood Drive on Campus

Blood Drive on Campus

As students, we may be short for cash but we're not short on blood supplies.

Currently the nearest locations to donate blood are Lincoln County Hospital or The Showroom on Tritton Road. Our SU currently do a lot for charities and fundraising so this seems like a sensible step.

If you think this would be a good idea, please upvote as we need at least 50 upvotes for this SUgesstion to be assigned to a Student Leader to implement!

Update 19/12/17 After contacting NHS Blood and Transplant they have said that they no longer hold blood drives as too much is wasted due to oversupply of specific blood types. I will look into advertising existing centres and now to book appointments. This is a fantastic idea unfortunately this SUggestion not plausible as the NHS no longer holds blood drives.

I really agree with this! I have an appointment to donate at The Showroom in January but it's a 35-minute walk, which is fine on the way there, but on the way back can be dangerous if you have no one with you to check you are okay. Giving blood is so important, it would be great to see a blood drive van parked outside of the Minerva building and for more awareness to be made!
