Summer practices are now running every Tuesday evening in Preston Park from about 6pm until sunset. There are usually a few people there for a throw-around earlier than 6 so feel free to turn up early.
In what will hopefully be a regular occurrence, the Brighton Ultimate community is going to give blood this March. We have both the university clubs involved plus all the extra players in and around Brighton. That’s a lot of blood!!
If you’ve donated before you’ll know exactly what to do. Get a booking around 7pm on Thursday the 21st March at The Jury’s Inn. We’ll then all meet up afterwards.
If you haven’t donated blood before then definitely do it. You’ll feel good about it especially with the free stickers! The whole process is very easy and the staff really look after you.
1) To book you need to go to www.blood.co.uk > search ‘Brighton’ > then look for the session I mentioned (The Jury’s Inn, 21st March) > Book.
2) A new window will pop up.
3) Fill in your details and try to get a booking somewhere around 7pm. It doesn’t matter if you don’t get it at that time since there will be loads of us in the same boat.
4) It’ll take about 45-60 minutes, after which we’ll all meet up
