Loulé’s Mar Shopping Algarve will host a blood drive this Saturday (March 7) between 10am and 1pm.

It will take place on the shopping centre’s first floor near the IKEA store and is being organised in partnership with the Algarve’s university hospital board (CHUA).

Donors should be healthy, aged between 18 and 65 (60 if a first-time donor), weigh over 50kgs and have their ID with them. Eating a light fat-free meal before donating is recommended.
