This week we donated 1000 masks to Essex Voluntary Blood Service (Essex Blood Runners), a local charitable organisation that delivers urgent blood supplies to 9 hospitals across Essex and London from Basildon Blood Bank, as well as supporting the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance with multiple daily blood replenishment runs.
This service is free of charge and has been providing 24 hour support, 7 days a week during the COVID-19 pandemic, using volunteer bikers including our very own Steven Drew.
The donation was gratefully received by EVBS Chairman Carol Weller, who thanked the team at DG for their valuable donation.
“The donated masks will be distributed to our volunteers, providing them with much needed additional personal protection whilst delivering Blood Supplies to local hospitals. Thank you on behalf of the whole team” – Carol Weller
We want to thank Carol and her team who are working so hard to make sure hospitals have the vital blood supplies that they need to save lives.
