“A drop of blood revives hope” is the slogan for the initiative which aims to promote student participation in community service whilst helping UK patients in hospital.

Around 16 Saudi students will be donating blood at Whitley Wood Fire Station tomorrow but a total of 23 students are signed up.

Emad Alotaibi, a Saudi student said: “It is one of our duties to show our gratitude to the community in Reading and also we should be a part of this community by at least donating blood.”

The society encouraged people to sign up to the initiative through social media and organised an introductory overview for all participants taking part, so they knew how to register on the NHS website.

A member of the society will be accompanying the donors to the donation centre for support.

The society hopes to spread their humanitarian initiative across the UK to reach their target of 300 donors.

In doing so, they wish to show their gratitude to the British people.
