Giving blood for the 100th time

Peter Ehegartner is 64 years old and first donated blood on 24th January 1981 when he followed is his father’s footsteps.

Admittedly it was another 10 years before he started doing so on a regular basis, but then he kept on going and this month (July 2013) donated blood for the 100th time.

For this achievement he received an engraved watch and a badge of honour with “100” on it from the blood donor service along with a hamper from the local branch of the Red Cross.

He has already recruited two new donors – his daughter and future son-in-law who both gave blood for the first time this year.
