Glasgow University Give Blood
8 Nelson Mandela Place, G2 1BT Glasgow, United Kingdom
Back by popular demand, it's Glasgow University Give Blood's annual BLOOD BATTLE!
This year we're working in association with Glasgow University Students' Representative Council (GUSRC) and GUSA to see which GU club can save the most lives. Can anyone take the top spot from reigning champions Glasgow University Muay Thai??
Giving blood is the easiest way you can save lives — each donation could make a life-changing difference to three people. Plus you get free biscuits, so there really is no downside. Show us your competitive side, and get donating!
THE CHALLENGE: SRC and GUSA clubs/teams assemble to donate as much blood as possible between 1st Feb and 23rd March
THE RULES: Head along to 8 Nelson Mandela Place, and submit a photo to this page to gain points for your club. 1 DONATION = 1 POINT!* We want this competition to be as inclusive as possible, so if for any reason (other than recent tattoos/piercings) you are ineligible to donate then give us a message! And there's no need to give a reason. Your good intentions will still get you a point.
*If you don't wish to post a photo then message the Glasgow Uni Give Blood page and we'll update your total
THE PRIZE: The coveted GUGB TROPHY! Potential other exciting prizes TBA. Winners will be announced on 23rd March.
GIVING BLOOD: You should feel fit and well when donating blood, and make sure you are well hydrated.
Please note: there are some restrictions on who can give blood, including travel, medical conditions, certain medications, and piercings.
Make sure you complete the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service quick quiz to check whether you are eligible for donation before you go along: scotblood.co.uk/giving-blood/can-i-give-blood/
Additional restrictions can apply — please visit the SNBTS website or call 03453017270 to speak to the professionals if you have any questions!
The donor centre offers a drop in service but please try as far as possible to book appointments a few days in advance to speed up the process, especially if there’s a big group of you going along! Call 03453017270 or visit scotblood.co.uk/donation-locations/glasgow-blood-donor-centre/
From all of us at GUGB — HAPPY DONATING!
