St Andrew’s College Blood Drive

The culture of blood donation is going from strength to strength at St Andrew’s College this year and the competition amongst the Houses is fierce.

The recent Blood Drive will go down in history as the one with the most sign-ups from boys over the past 22 years, as 47 boys and 4 staff members participated. Unfortunately, as often happens during the winter months, some volunteers were blocked due to their low iron levels, flu symptoms, or other medical issues.

The staff members of the SANBS were delighted to collect 39 units of blood at the end of the day. Number 40 was donated the next day when Roland Turvey braved the DSG clinic—well done, boys!

The results for house points are as follows:

4th – Espin 1 unit

3rd – Armstrong, Graham House, and Mullins, each with 7 units

2nd – Upper with 14 units, and

1st – Merriman with 15 units

Thank you to everyone who participated in this drive, whether it was to donate blood, money or buy a ribbon to support the cause. Special mention must go to the peer promoters in each house for their time, as they were the driving force behind it all.

Each donation automatically entered a raffle for a R150 tuck shop voucher.

The winner of the raffle is: Jack Cullinan
