Social events

To support the Red Cross, you don’t have to jump out of a plane or run 26 miles.

Every year we organise hundreds of social events all over the UK. Coffee mornings, balls, cake sales, talks at stately homes. Just turn up and enjoy what’s on offer.

Find out how we will spend the money you raise.
