Newcastle Blood Donation Campaign, 10/06/2015.

The IDC team were at mosques around the north east encoruaging people to sign up and give blood. This year was a bit different as the team also set up a stall at Newcastles City Library and got people to sign up there too!

With National Blood Awareness Week around the corner (10th – 15th June 2014), IDC are pushing our new campaign:
Muslims “Be Positive” and Give Blood 2014 

Throughout this week (09/06 – 15/06), the IDC Teams across the North East were out in various locations to sign people up to donate their blood.

Get involved with the nationwide blood donation campaign this “National Blood Awareness Week”!



Be Positive – Muslims Give Blood Newcastle













Our initiative across Newcastle and Middlesbrough, where local teams donate blood – Just one way to benefit society and hopefully save lives. Allah says in the Quran, “…and whoever saves the life of a person, it is as if he has saved the life of the whole of mankind.” (Quran 5:32)

Feedback from the community:

“Quality initiative from IDC & a good way to get the Muslim
community active.”

Kamran Rahman

“I was happy to come donate blood for the first time, if it wasn’t
for IDC I would never know of the blood shortage.”

Sujeet Karri.

“I think it’s great, I think it’s a great idea, I think it’s great that
the community can come together as one.”

Tammy Potts, Newcastle
