Scout Centre of the month

14th of June is World Blood Donor Day

Blood connects us all
Donating blood is a generous act which can save lives, young and old, here and everywhere. By raising awerness with our YPs, they have the power to convince adults to join and have information to make their own decision when they reach the age. 

With videos and activities for young people, it is a programme idea which can see you get involved locally by making Thank You cards for donors, promoting a local donation with your group members and discussing blood borne diseases or finding your own blood type.  

For many african scout groups blood donation, education on blood borne diseases and visiting hospital is part of the programme.
