CORPORATE companies, educational institutions, religious organisations and families are invited to participate in the Gift of Life Challenge on Saturday, 3 September from 9am to 3pm at the Kwa-Dukuza Town Hall supper room.

SANBS have declared the blood donor clinic on Saturday a promotional clinic and every donor will receive a special token of appreciation.
For the Gift of Life Challenge, there are three trophies up for grabs - first, second and third place for the three largest groups of donors.

This time around, something special is planned for the children to keep them occupied while you donate.
They can have their face painted and take part in drawing competitions in a safe environment, monitored by volunteers.

Your donation has the potential of saving­ up to three lives and it is your gift of liquid love to your fellow man. The requirements for potential donors are:
• You need to weigh 50kgs or more.
• Be in the age group of 16 to 65.
• Be leading a sexually safe lifestyle.
• Be in good health on the day of the donation.
• You need to have had a meal prior to donating.
