Wales Hero Sam Warburton supports 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.

To celebrate, the Welsh Blood Service invited school children from Hawthorn Primary School to dress up as super heroes to illustrate how many donations are needed everyday.

In support of World Blood Donor Day, Wales’ rugby Hero Sam Warburton visited the school and met the ‘super heroes’ and helped raise awareness of the importance of giving blood.

Sam was happy to support such a great initiative and said “It’s fantastic to see the children dressed up, it really brings it home what a vital role blood donors play in saving lives.”
