When Did You Last Save A Life?

PNBHS Blood Donor Day 2021

Well done to all young men who donated at the annual PNBHS Blood Donor Day. Your contributions are literally life saving and we hope this involvement can be the beginning of a life-long habit.  

On the day 76 young men and staff donated 63 units of blood, which will help to save approximately 189 lives - a fantastic achievement.

We also had some fantastic feedback from the NZ Blood Service staff, who were very impressed with the manners, initiative and positive approach from our young men and appreciated the mature manner in which they related to them and to each other.  This feedback was great to hear and is a credit to all of those who were involved.

Students are encouraged to download the NZ Blood Service app, which will remind them when they can donate in future and notify them when their donated blood is used.  Click here to download the app.

One donation can save up to three lives!

When you give blood, you're giving a priceless gift that can't be found anywhere else. Your blood donation can be used in treatments for those going through cancer, undergoing surgery, or who have been in a traumatic accident. It can also be used to help those with autoimmune disorders or bleeding disorders.

By choosing to be a blood donor, you're making a lifesaving difference in communities across New Zealand.
