Blood connects us all
With videos and activities for young people, it is a programme idea which can see you get involved locally by making Thank You cards for donors, promoting a local donation with your group members and discussing blood borne diseases or finding your own blood type.
For many african scout groups blood donation, education on blood borne diseases and visiting hospital is part of the programme.
