Newport Gwent Dragons Heroes Nathan Buck and Lewis Evans visited the SuperHeroes of Maindee Primary School to show their support for World Blood Donor Day.
The theme of the 2012 World Blood Donor Day campaign, “Every blood donor is a hero” focuses on the idea that every one of us can become a hero by giving blood. The Welsh Blood Service invited the children (and teachers!) to don their Superhero capes to highlight the importance of regular blood donation.
Every year 92 million blood donations are collected worldwide. The transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives thanks to the support and kindness of donor heroes.
