BRS Blood Donor Day Cancelled

Message from the British Residents’ Society

Due to the recent changes in the TRNC regulations regarding COVID-19 and following a discussion with the National blood bank, it has been decided to cancel the planned BRS blood donor day scheduled for Saturday 12th September 2020

Dear Member,

The BRS will be holding a Blood Donor Day on Saturday 12th September at Girne State Hospital. Timings will be 10.00 am until 12.00 pm. We hope to see as many of you as possible on the day. 

•   Please wear your mask and observe social distancing

 The Blood Bank is always very low on blood, and it only takes half an hour to donate and it literally could save a life. Please pass this message on to family and friends and encourage them to donate. New donors are always welcome.

I apologise to those who have donated less than 4 months ago or are unable to donate and have received this email, it is a general email going out to blood donors and BRS members.

Please note, that if you have undergone surgery and had a general anaesthetic, you cannot donate blood for 6 months after your operation. This is due to the anaesthetic remaining in your system.

The maximum age limit for donors is 68. First time donors the maximum age is 67.

If you have any queries, please contact the BRS Blood Donor Team at the following email address:

 Thank you for your continued support.

Julian Mawdesley
