We cannot do what we do without the assistance of passionate people and organisations. Our blood donors are our foundation, and without you we cannot save lives. In order for us to recruit new blood donors, ensure that blood donation clinics go ahead as scheduled, as well as inform the public of the blood donation clinics we rely on various stakeholders to assist us in our cause.

Each year we take the opportunity to thank these remarkable people and organisations by presenting our recognition awards. Our Marketing Practitioners have the opportunity to nominate valued partners for the respective awards, after which an internal committee meet, deliberate and decide the worthy winners. This year was no different, great motivations were received and the committee had a hard task to select the winners. The winners that were chosen for this year’s awards went the extra mile in supporting us and promoting blood donation.

On Monday, 28 November 2022, we had the opportunity to thank our valued partners in person by hosting a small awards function at Square Café, Century City Convention Centre.

A special thanks and congratulations to our winners in the following categories:

Community/Organisation Award
Villiersdorp Round Table

Centre/ Retail Award

We would like to use this opportunity to thank each and every one of our partners, donor representatives and committed organisations for their remarkable efforts.
