The Cricket Association of Bengal observes 37th Frank Worrell day on its 89th birthday at the Eden Gardens Kolkata today.
Like every year this year, the blood donation camp started at 9 in the morning and continued till 6 in the evening.
People from various parts of the city and the districts came to donate blood since the morning.
This year, 1777 donors donated blood including all districts.
While last year, the Frank Worrell’s certificate was signed by Yuvraj Singh, this year it was signed by V.V.S. Laxman.
CAB President Sourav Ganguly raised the Association’s flag sharp at 11 AM in presence of other office bearers.
“I donate blood every year. This makes me feel I am doing something good for the society. Blood donation is such a good thing,” said Ayan Chatterjee, a blood donor.
A volunteer of the camp said, “We are running this camp for a long time and over the years it is gaining popularity. Lot of people came from different parts of the city and even districts to donate blood. Good to see them engaging for a good cause.”
