Social events

To support the Red Cross, you don’t have to abseil from great heights or run 26 miles.

Every year we organise hundreds of social events all over the UK. From coffee mornings, to balls, cake sales, fairs and comedy nights, we have something for everyone. See below for all our upcoming events and enjoy what's on offer!

Find out how we will spend the money you raise.
