KB SENTRAL Shopping Centre in collaboration with the Suri Seri Begawan Hospital Blood Bank held a blood donation campaign at the shopping centre last Sunday in conjunction with World Blood Donor Day.

The six-hour campaign collected 65 pints of blood. It represented an on-going event as part of KB Sentral’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.

The campaign was conducted to help support, increase and maintain blood stocks and ensure the ready availability of the required blood group at the Blood Bank, especially during emergencies.

Beesket Brunei also took part by giving away discount cards to blood donors who enjoyed a 50 per cent discount on any ice blended drink of their choice.

A representative from Suri Seri Begawan Hospital Blood Bank commented that the number of turnouts was beyond their expectation.
