Pint for a pint blood drive at BSB

JANUARY 18, 2018

Bridge Street Brewery will be hosting another “’PINT FOR A PINT” blood drive for SANBS on Friday, 19 January from 11:00 to 17:00 in an initiative to assist with the low blood supply that the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) is currently experiencing.

Bridge Street Brewery will be offering every donor a voucher for a pint of their favourite BSB craft beer in exchange for a donation of a pint of blood. 

The minimum requirements to be a viable donor are the following:

•             You are between the ages of 16 and 65 years old, for first time donors.

•             You weigh a minimum of 50 kgs

•             You are in good health.

•             You lead a low risk lifestyle.

•             You consider your blood safe for transfusion.

•             You have had a balanced meal within four hours of donating blood.

•             You have not donated blood in the last 56 days

All donors belong to one of four blood groups: A, B, AB or O.  You are also classified as either Rh positive or Rh negative. There are therefore eight different main blood groups.  Group O blood is known as the universal blood type, as it can be given to patients of any blood group.
