The Hospitals Board and the Bermuda Blood Donor Centre today announces that blood and apheresis donors who donate between 1 August and 30 September 2022 will be entered into a raffle draw for two $50 Whip Rideshare credits prizes. This is thanks to Whip Rideshare who has donated the Whip ride credits. The winner will be announced on 1 October 2022.
Whip Rideshare is Bermuda’s first e-scooter ridesharing micro mobility service and affordable eco-transport.
Alex Marshall the founder of Whip Rideshare states: “I have previously been a blood donor and wanted to help encourage people to donate as it is important for our community. We are all one family in Bermuda and this is one way we can help each other. Whip is proud to be a part of such a worthy cause. I encourage everyone to come to the Blood Donor Centre at the hospital and donate. Your donation will help save lives.”
The Bermuda Blood Donor Centre is the island’s sole donation centre supporting the hospital. In 2021 there were over 2000 transfusions and the need for donors continues to grow.
Bermuda Blood Donor Centre Nurse Phlebotomist Lucy Correia adds: “We are so grateful for the donation from Whip. If you are considering donating for the first time we promise to make it as comfortable as possible. The process only takes about 30 minutes and your one gift of blood can help up to three people – as well as put you in the raffle for the Whip ride credits. We are located on the first floor of the General Wing of the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and are open Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 2:30pm and Friday 8:30am to 1pm for appointments. Call 236-5067. You can also visit www.bermudahospitals.bm for more information about donating.
