Give Before You Go – Germany-bound Jags support “Yes Sir I’m A Donor” campaign

“Yes Sir I’m A Donor” was the loud and proud message of dozens of Germany-bound Jags fans as they gathered at the Wyre Stadium at Firhill for a special event on Monday night.

In partnership with the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS), the red and yellow army turned into the red t-shirt army for one night only to back this important cause.

With an estimated 200,000 Scotland fans travelling to Germany, and many more at home glued to the TV at home, the Service is anticipating a reduction in blood donations over the period.

The call to action to Jags fans is clear – you can #givebeforeyougo by visiting (or calling 0345 90 90 999) to make an appointment.

Among the Germany-bound Jags backing the campaign on Monday night was Thistle men’s team captain and women’s team manager Brian Graham, accompanied by son Daniel, who said: “It’s such an important campaign and one I am fully behind. We heard on the night that every time you give blood you could save or improve the lives of up to three people, so I’d encourage as many of the red and yellow army as possible to give before they go and make that important difference to help others.”

The club would like to thank Brian and Daniel and all the Thistle fans for attending, thank the SNBTS for inviting us to support the campaign and also thank Pie Sports for the donation of free pies on the night.
