Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's signed certificate and a badge will be presented to donors at a blood donation camp on the occasion of the 90th Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) foundation day on Saturday. It will be the 38th year of Sir Frank Worrell Day, in remembrance of the legendary West Indian cricketer's noble gesture of donating blood to former skipper Nari Contractor, who was hit on the head in an Indians v Barbados match in 1962.

Seven blood banks with a total capacity of 1,200 units will collect blood from 9 am till 6 pm on Friday. In 2017, the collection from the voluntary blood donors of West Bengal was 9,50,000 units.
