Miller Staff Donate Blood

As part of recognising its social responsibility, Miller Distributors Ltd organised a Blood Drive on Thursday 28th April 2011. The mobile blood bank was parked outside Miller’s Head Offices in Luqa for five hours as members of staff made themselves available for 20 minutes to donate blood. Approximately 475ml of blood is given during a blood donation. Each donation helps three patients as each bag is filtered and separated into three products, namely: platelets, red blood cells and plasma. The body takes an estimated 8 weeks to replace the red blood cells, therefore the next Blood Drive is scheduled to take place at the end of Summer.
