Hotel General Manager Michael Delargy led more than 80 workers in the blood drive May 16. Residents of the neighborhoods near the Jomtien Beach hotel also joined in the “Donate Blood To Honor the Queen” event.
Human Resources Director Wamchai Sangsawangchai said it was the hotel’s second blood drive in nine months, both organized in honor of HM the Queen for her August birthday.

“The blood donation campaign was organized first for employees to have an opportunity to show their loyalty and make merit to HM the Queen for Mother’s Day on Aug. 12,” Wamchai said. “Another reason was to create awareness amongst employees of the hotel to learn giving, sacrifice and sharing, an important act and a part of the hotel’s motto ‘Life’s Better When Shared.’ In addition, this will stimulate blood donators to have better health because if they were unhealthy, they would not be allowed to donate blood.”
Employees at the Sheraton Pattaya Resort and friends roll up their sleeves to donate blood.
