Do you know your blood type? Many of us don’t, so the NZ Blood Service is here to help.

They’ll be setting up at number of New World stores over the next couple of months to help people like you find out this important information.

All it takes is a quick finger prick test and you’re done. Our friends from Griffin’s will even shout you a free biccie afterwards. How good is that?

So just check out the schedule below and head to your nearest participating New World to take part.


Please note: You must be 16 years or older and meet basic eligibility criteria to participate.

For any questions, please contact: whatsyourbloodtype@farrimond.co.nz
