Current blood stock levels according to the SANBS website are sufficient only for the next 4.2 days. One unit of blood can potentially save up to three people’s lives.

“We regularly arrange days where staff, clients and people in the immediate vicinity can voluntarily donate blood,” says Penquin’s CEO Grant Leishman. “We have moved into our new premises and this will be the first of many blood drives to come in our new home – we encourage all of our new neighbours to donate.”

Penquin are located at Waverly Office Park, 125 Corlett Drive, Bramley. For more information, please contact Leigh Hailstone on 011 879 1900 or email her at leighh@penquin.co.za.
