Rutherford College Blood Drive

Rutherford students aged over 16 were offered the chance to donate blood. It was an opportunity to escape a few classes, eat free food and most importantly save lives. 85 students and teachers came through the door on Friday and with 57 eligible donors, 171 lives were saved. The New Zealand Blood Service is immensely grateful for the donations and eagerness of students and their willingness to donate. Donating blood is something that a lot of people are afraid of and they applaud the handful of students who are first time donors. One year 13 student said, “donating blood made my day as I felt like I had done something that will impact other people’s lives positively.” Hopefully we can continue this narrative for future years and continue to save lives. Thank you to the Prefect volunteers and the nurses and team members at NZ Blood.
