Summer is often referred to as the most challenging time for local blood banks. Even though their regular donors are often away, or not able to give blood, the need for blood does not decrease. On the contrary, experts say that the summer holidays are rife with accidents and many patients require blood transfusions.

Festival blood drive will take place in a designated area located at Milenijna Alley 14 (lot belongs to TACONIC company). Blood donors will have access to a large tent and two blood donation points, where the Regional Blood Donation Centre staff from Poznań and Zielona Góra will be running the festival blood drive from July 31st until August 3rd. 

Donors will be able to register between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm daily. 

The festival blood drive initiative was initiated in 2006 and 22 039 festival-goers donated blood since. All in all, thanks to our joint efforts we were able to collect 9 918 litres of blood. Doctors estimate, that we were able to help 29 754 patients, who require blood transfusions.
