A GROUP of youths took time out to give blood as part of their community work last Friday.

About 14 young people from the Tuatua Volleyball Youth Club attended the drive and donated 56 units.

Club president Semaema Mae thanked the club members who turned up.

"Our club is a sporting club that is taking the various opportunities to involve our youths in worthy causes apart from the sporting activities we partake in," said Ms Mae.

She said the common passion for the game of volleyball brought the youths together and that it was a good platform to channel community outreach programs. Labasa Hospital Blood Bank officer Alena Koroi said the drive was aimed at topping up the bank as the festive season approaches.

"We're thankful to these spirited youths for donating the 56 units of blood and we thank them for being a blessing in the lives of those who need blood," she said.
