Students, teachers and staff of Lambak Kanan Jalan 10 (PKLKJ10) Primary School as well as members of the public participated in a blood donation campaign held in conjunction with Teacher’s Day celebration at the school’s library yesterday.

Sixty-one pints of blood were collected during the event organised by the school’s Parent- Teacher Association Committee members in collaboration with Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Saleha (RIPAS) Hospital’s Blood Donation Centre.

Themed ‘Blood Donation, Charity’, the campaign aimed to raise awareness on the importance of donating blood and to get students to be actively involved in saving other people’s lives by becoming regular blood donors.

It also aimed at raising awareness on the importance of replenishing the hospital’s blood supply.
