Not all heroes wear capes, and during a time where there’s a great shortage of blood across the Maltese islands, The Eden Leisure Group has come together for a good cause.
On Wednesday, 3rd of July, a public blood drive will be set up in front of the Eden Cinemas for anyone who would like to give blood. The blood drive will be available from 8.30 am to 1pm. We encourage people from all four corners of Malta to take a step forward and be a hero, after all it’s in our blood!
Every hero deserves to be acknowledged, so we are giving a free Scoop ice-cream to each person who donates blood on the day.
Are you Eligible to give blood?
People aged 17 to 67 can give blood, but you’ll need a parental consent form to give blood if you’re under 18.
If you’re between the ages of 63 and 67, you can only give blood if you registered as a blood doner before the age of 63.
And since you can give blood every three to four months, make sure you haven’t given blood any time after the beginning of April if you’re thinking of joining the Eden Leisure Group blood drive.
What you’ll need to give blood
Make sure to have some form of identification with you on the day: id card, license or passport.
Before you donate blood, you will get a medical check-up to ensure that you are both healthy and eligible to give blood.
Be a hero this 3rd of July and give blood at the Eden Leisure Group blood drive!
