The world of tennis also donates blood
During today’s session and in a marquee set up for the occasion, the Banc de Sang i Teixits has organised a day to collect blood donations, taking advantage of the large influx of spectators visiting since the gates opened the RCTB facilities.
It is not the first time that the Banc de Sang i Teixits has brought its equipment, stretchers and everything necessary to the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell so that those who want to donate blood can do so before or after seeing the best tennis on clay. In fact, and as explained by the entity’s Promotion Technician, Silvia Arcos, “in previous editions we have managed to collect around 160 donations in a single day, a great figure for the always very needed blood. That’s why we’re always very grateful to the organization of the tournament because, even though it’s a holiday around Easter, we don’t rest, we can’t stop asking for donations”.
In addition, this year the reward for donating blood is tickets for another day of the competition and also being able to access the ticket contest for the final next Sunday. A gratuity in exchange for a simple contribution that can save lives.
