Obviously, if you can’t get there tomorrow and want to donate another time before the swim, just contact the Blood Bank.

Vampire Swim – get entered.

The Vampire Swim is going ahead in Myrtleville on October 31st at 12 midday.  Swim is a loose term – you can just dip your feet for a paddle if you want.  The goal is to encourage people to donate blood during this month.   If you donate blood, the entry fee is €10 – if not, you can still swim, but it’s €15.

Funds raised will be donated to the CUH Children’s Ward charity.
