Since its inception in 1978, the dedicated and hard-working Rotary Club of Anguilla has been motivated by one shared goal...

Be a gift to Anguilla!

Their next gift to Anguilla?

A blood bank for Anguilla's Princess Alexandra Hospital.

The cost of the blood bank?

$100,000 USD.

The good news?

If the Rotary Club of Anguilla raises $50,000, the Rotary Foundation will match the amount and donate the remaining $50,000.

And so, the mission to build a blood bank is on!

To raise the funds, the determined Rotary Club of Anguilla has put together an enticing raffle...

A chance to win your own piece of Anguilla.

The Need For a Blood Bank in Anguilla

Anguilla has never and still does not have a blood bank. When blood is needed, the hospital pulls from a small pool of donors for blood transfusions. It requires that a) a match be available and on-island and b) that match be screened before the blood can be collected and transfused. Time consuming, it's a process that can be detrimental in emergencies.

The blood bank will eliminate a great amount of wasted time in critical situations.

All funds raised by the Rotary Club of Anguilla go towards purchasing the equipment required to build the blood bank...

  • Blood bank centrifuge - capacity four units
  • Blood bank refrigerator – 23.3 Cu Ft single glass door 115 v
  • Blood bank freezer -20 C (upright solid single door 115 v)
  • Platelet agitator (5 – 10 units)
  • Equipment for donation process, ( 2 balances with timing devices, strippers and a heat sealer)
  • Blood Bank freezer -70 C (upright solid single door 115v)
  • Plasma thawer (small)
  • Cold chain transport units – capacity one and two units.

Rotary Club of Anguilla Builds a Home for Visually Challenged Youth

In 2014, the Rotary Club of Anguilla embarked on a mission... to provide Mr. Tyrone Richardson with a home of his own.

"[Visually challenged, Tyrone Richardson] is well-known throughout the Anguillian community having used his well-developed sense of direction to travel widely on the island on foot – and sometimes even on a bicycle – to the amazement of many. He has worked at the Water Corporation and at Aronel, a private water company. He has also played in a musical band."
- The Anguillian.

Tyrone Richardson is an inspiration to the community. Inspired by his story, in 2015, the Rotary Club of Anguilla engaged the community to begin construction on a home for Tyrone.

Construction Begins

A year-long project, it was fueled by a number of fundraisers and community events. Thanks to many contributions from the community and to the Rotary Club who donated over $24,000 USD, all came to fruition!

Construction Continues

One bedroom, spacious and fully complete with amenities, it is also located just next to his family's house in North Side. Today? "[Tyrone] plays his own music on a keyboard in the comfort of his home."
