World Blood Donor Day 2021

Yesterday, Monday 14th June, was World Blood Donor Day.  As part of this years celebrations, frontline healthcare workers joined New Zealand Blood Service in saying ‘thank you’ to the country’s incredible blood donors for helping them save lives.  Every 18 minutes someone in New Zealand requires blood or plasma and to continue to keep up with demand, NZ Blood needs to grow the donor registry by 10% in the next 12- months.  Those interested in becoming a blood donor should download the app, visit or call 0800 448 325 (0800 GIVE BLOOD) and book an appointment to donate.
