Resident recognised for donating blood more than 60 times


THE SPANISH Federation of Blood Donors awarded Maria Rose Ivars of Teulada-Moraira the ‘GRAN DONANTE DE ESPANA’ title earlier this week for donating blood over 60 times.

Councillors Rosana Caselles and Nieves Rodriguez congratulated Maria for her ‘commitment to society, her solidarity and generosity’.

Maria was very flattered and confirmed she will continue to donate blood for as long as she can.

She encouraged everybody to take part in the donations the municipality organizes, calling the donation of blood ‘a small action which can save a lot of lives’.
