Hockey blood drive

MORE than 30 pints of blood was collected during the Marist Hockey Club Blood Drive in Suva yesterday.

The drive is a community activity as part of their buildup towards their 20th anniversary Marist Hockey Tournament to be held next month at the National Hockey Centre in Suva.

Club vice-president Paul Fraser said the response from the players in the Suva Hockey League and the supporters was overwhelming.

"As you know, there is a shortage of blood in the blood bank and the patients in the hospitals need blood," he said.

"So we are really glad that we hosted this blood drive and even the guys from the blood bank were really happy with the response shown.

"The players, the club officials, friends and families of the players and some of their workmates showed up to show their support."

Fraser said they would engage in more community activities as part of their buildup towards the Geotech Drilling International-sponsored tournament.

"This is the first of many community activities that we will engage in and we will see the areas that need our support and we will act accordingly.

"So I would like to thank all those who contributed towards this worthy cause and I hope they will support us again in our other community activities."
