In a poignant tribute to the founders of Ananda College, the Old Anandians’ 70-75 Group, in collaboration with the Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, will hold the 25th Annual Blood Donation Campaign on Saturday, November 18, a media release said.
This event will be held on the grounds of Ananda College from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., marking a quarter-century of altruistic endeavors in the name of humanity.
Embodying the spirit of benevolence, this joint effort seamlessly brought together the Old Anandians’ 70-75 Group and the Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, with the voluntary engagement of the Old Anandians’ 2013 Group. All these entities are proudly affiliated with the esteemed Ananda College Old Boys Association. The collaborative synergy of these groups has been instrumental in the resounding success of the Blood Donation Campaign over the years.
This annual initiative extends an open invitation to all those who have been part of the preceding blood donation drives, urging them to once again contribute to this noble cause. Recognizing the inherent merit in such endeavors, the organizers emphasize the potential to save numerous lives through this act of compassion.
Beyond the Old Anandians’ fraternity, the broader public is also warmly invited to participate, extending the reach and impact of this meritorious programme. Located at the Ananda College premises, the event beckons individuals in the vicinity to join hands in this collective effort aimed at fostering a culture of giving and community engagement.
As the 25th edition unfolds, it stands as a testament to the enduring commitment of the Old Anandians’ 70-75 Group, the collaborative support of the Colombo North Teaching Hospital, Ragama, and the voluntary enthusiasm of the Old Anandians’ 2013 Group.
