Bermuda Hospitals Board and the Ministry of Health today announce that Freisenbruch Meyer has won the 2019-2020 Corporate Blood Drive Competition.

The annual competition, now in its seventh year, saw 16 businesses compete by having employees and their friends and families donate blood on their behalf. This year 371 donations were made as part of the competition, which comprises about 20% of all donations made during the year.

Minister of Health, the Hon. Kim Wilson JP MP, comments: “Congratulations, Freisenbruch Meyer! This competition continues to be a driving force to encourage blood donation in Bermuda. Thank you to all 16 competing companies. While there can only be one winner, every company who supports the competition is helping save lives in Bermuda.”

Other competing companies in 2019/2020 were: Argo/Ariel Re, Aspen, Butterfield Bank, Bermuda Police Service, Butterfield&Vallis, Chubb, Department of Corrections, Fidelity, Hamilton Insurance Group, Hamilton Princess&Beach Cub, Kitson Group of Companies, Lancashire Insurance Services, Renaissance Re, Sirius, Sampo International

Dr Clyde Wilson, Chief of Pathology at the BHB, adds: “We are grateful to all the competing companies, but Freisenbruch Meyer earned the trophy with regular blood drives throughout the year. It is so important for people to donate blood. We rely on a wonderful group of regular donors, and this competition helps encourage more people to donate, which we desperately need. So thank you to all the competing companies this year! We hope more companies join in the coming year and grow the donor pool further. This friendly competition can be a way of generating engagement and raising morale, as well as supporting a critical service that saves lives in our community everyday.”

Companies are urged to email the blood donor centre at blood.donor@bhb.bm if they are interested in competing in the next competition.
