of Frank Worrell's day
1st February 2020
A special badge with the name of the donor and a certificate signed by Rohit Sharma will Mark the 40th Sir Frank Worrell Day celebrated on the occasion of CAB's Foundation Day.
This will also mark the 92nd Foundation Day of the association.
CAB Jt. Secy Debabrata Das said: "This year is very special to us as it marks the fortieth edition of the noble event. A special badge will be made for every doner with his/her name engraved on it."
"The exhibition match will be played on 15 February instead of the event day," he added.
This year the blood donors will be presented with a special CAB badge and certificate of honour signed by Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma.
"Before IPL season we will distribute the badges to the donors," said CAB Vice-President Naresh Ojha.
In 1962 Nari Contractor, the then captain of the Indian touring team to West Indies, was hit by a bouncer from Charlie Griffith causing a serious head injury. A surgeon was flown OK n town from Trinidad to perform emergency life saving neurosurgery operation.
Led by Sir Frank Worrell the players of both the teams lived up to donate the required blood for Nari. The life was saved.
In remembrance of the humanitarian act CAB has been celebrating it along with the association's Foundation day and this year 'Ujaan' will perform to mark the special occasion.
Blood donation will take place in all the subdivisions of all the districts and with the participation of 10 Government Blood Banks on 3 February.
