It is more fun to donate blood together than alone. Accompanying someone who have never given blood to make their first donation is also very meaningful. The Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) welcomes all of you to invite your family and friends or your co-workers to give blood as a group and share the joy of helping others. Besides visiting any donor centre, appointment service is available for those who are interested in group donation providing at least 3 people are involved. We will arrange a date and time according to the number of donors participating and the operation of the donor centres; we may need to assign a number of time-slots to donation groups with 15 or more participants in order to minimize the effect on normal operation. We will provide attractive photography props for the groups to take picutres with and present them with a commemorative certificate.
You are required to submit the completed “Group Donation Application Form” by fax to 2780 4151 or directly to any donor centre at least 14 days in advance. We will make arrangements by considering the number of participants involved and the operation of the donor centre(s) concerned. For groups with more than 15 participants, a number of time-slots may be required to for the donor centre(s) to cope with the amount of donors.
On the Group Donation day
Every participant is required to visit the donor centre(s) in the designated time-slot. Please do not swarm the donor centre(s) at the same time. Also, please be reminded that participants have to hand in the name list of the group or “Individual Donor Registration From” to the nursing staff during health screening.
