You’re a life saver brew!


When it comes to sustaining life, there’s one vital liquid without which humans can’t survive. Coffee. That, and blood. The South African National Blood Service (SANBS) now offers both.

SANBS and Nespresso have joined forces to bring world-class coffee blends to our life saving heroes and heroines. If you need a quick pick-me-up after donating, SANBS will now offer every blood donor a free Nespresso coffee at our donor centres across the nation.

Not only will donors be asked to select their favourite blends, they will also stand the chance to win an exclusive Nespresso machine. Simply take a picture you and your “brew” at any SANBS donor centre and tag us on Facebook (@sanbs) or Twitter and Instagram (@theSANBS) using #SANBS.

But why stop at saving lives? We’re also helping to save the environment. That’s why we don’t use plastic lids for the paper take-away coffee cups.

We’ll also be recycling your used Nespresso pods for you. Simply bring them along when you donate blood.

Thanks to SANBS and Nespresso, donating blood now has more perks than ever.
