Radisson Blu Resort Launches Blood Drive

The Radisson Blu Resort Fiji had a successful start to their Responsible Business Action Month last week with all staff actively engaging in the month-long programme.

The resort hosted a blood drive and opened its premises to staff members and the public as just one of the many efforts for the month of September.

Since 2013, Radisson Blu staff have been encouraged to work together and have collectively donated more than 100 pints of blood which have benefitted the local community.

The Blood Bank received close to 30 pints of blood which was quite timely for them as the blood would be used for open heart surgeries currently underway at the Lautoka Hospital.

The successful programme is a step forward in the Radisson’s commitment to its 2017 goal to ensure 100 per cent participation in their September Responsible Business Action Month while also assisting the National Blood and Ambulance Services in contributing to its blood bank.

“It was very empowering to see the number of team members at the Blood Drive and I am confident this year’s blood donations will greatly assist those in need,” said Gerard Knight, the general manager of Radisson Blu Resort Fiji.

“I am very proud to see so many generous people come together for a great cause.”

Since the start of the Responsible Business month, Radisson Blu Resort Fiji has assisted in setting up a new library at Sabeto Muslim School and donated computers and a projector at Vuruwa District School.

A food drive is also underway and all donations will be taken to St Mina Children’s Home this weekend where staff will also aim to entertain the children.

The month-long list of activities also includes; Zumba classes and Free Health screening for the staff to encourage help vitality in their everyday life.

The resort is committed to its stand on responsible business with its “Yes I can!” attitude and will continue to make positive changes this September.
