Members of the Donor Marketing Operations team attended the Manchester Great Run at the weekend to spread the word about blood donation and to recruit new donors.
Thousands of runners took part in the Great Manchester run and Keely Walton, Sophie Salinger, Rob Burley and Will Holland did a great job and recruited 85 new donors across the day.
Dominic Sutherland, Head of Donor Marketing Operations (North), who also took part in the run, said “The team were really impressive this weekend at the Great Manchester Run, it was a long day but worthwhile. The team were speaking to potential donors, recruiting new donors and booking appointments for current and new donors.
It was a great opportunity for us to raise awareness about blood donation in the Manchester area, especially as we have two donor centres located near the centre. We look forward to attending similar events in the future.”
As always, a huge number of celebrities took part in the run including Sir Mo Farrah and Ethiopian champion, Tirunesh Dibaba.
