Saving Lives with Blood Donors

On the 3 May the Blood Donors Clinic visited WGHS to accept blood from our donors. In order to be a blood donor one has to be over the age of 16, have eaten a substantial breakfast, weigh over 50kg and have a blood pressure higher than 12.5 mmHg. Luckily many girls met those requirements.

A total of 56 girls donated a pint each, 47 of them being new donors. Together we saved approximately 224 lives in the two hours the clinic was at our school!

Thank you to all the brave and enthusiastic blood donors for taking time out of class to help save lives. Make sure that you all donate again in three months time.
