Join The Giants And Save A Life With NIBTS
The Belfast Giants are pleased to support the Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Serviceâ€™s Donor Week and along with Captain Adam Keefe, the organisation are encouraging all fans to sign up to become a blood donor. In Northern Ireland alone there are around 500 people needing blood in every week, including many of our own fans.
It is a cause close to the heart of Captain Adam Keefe, who explains the importance of giving blood, “There are bigger things in life than hockey. 14 year old Tom Simpson is long time Belfast Giants season ticket holder and true warrior, needs blood fortnightly to survive, and so do many others.”
Paul McElkerney of the Blood Transfusion Service:
“Hopefully Giants fans will get behind Tom, by coming forward to enrol to give blood and save someoneâ€™s life, just like his!”
Belfast Giants players and fans recently took part in a photo shoot to mark Tomâ€™s 250th transfusion and raise awareness that 200 new donors are needed every week to help keep Tom and many others alive. Register today by texting BLOOD to 60081 or call in to Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service in the Belfast City Hospital complex.
Please give blood and save a life!
