We recently hosted a Blood Donor drive at our offices, in association with SANBS, Afrihost clients and a few of our Rivonia neighbours. We are extremely grateful to the kind and dedicated SANBS medical team who took the time and effort to setup in what is usually the Afrihost Gym.
We got the ball rolling (and the blood flowing) early with the first donors trickling in at 09H30. Despite a few needle-phobia’s and dizzy spells, our unrelenting donors persevered and there was soon a queue of willing donors waiting to do their bit to help SANBS in their important mission.
Afrihost’s clients and guests each received a complimentary meal, and will also a free 10GB Prepaid ADSL voucher.
The highlight of the day was our CEO, Gian Visser, rolling up his sleeve with a smile, and doing his part. He was even honored with an award for his efforts (though it might not feature prominently on his mantelpiece!)
All in all, a successful (and fun) day, and we’d like to thank each and every person who participated in the drive. We plan to have many more of these, and there will always be room for more participants in this very worthy cause.
