PIPPA Coote, in association with the South African National Blood Services (SANBS), has collaborated with The Sunflower Fund and the Organ Donating Association, all of whom will be at the blood drive on Wednesday, 24

June at the Harvest Church in La Lucia from 10am to 6pm.

SANBS celebrates the dedication of its blood donors this month and reminds the public that, as our population grows and access to healthcare improves, the demand for blood supplies to keep people alive in medical emergencies is constantly increasing. Goodie bags will be given to the first 50 blood donors, and once again, there will be wonderful spot prizes and give-aways for donors on the day. Should you wish to support or sponsor this wonderful community initiative, please email Pippa at
