Local presidents

For more than 100 years, volunteer presidents have been championing the British Red Cross in their local areas.

Passionate about supporting the Red Cross and its aims, our volunteer presidents are ambassadors for the organisation. They help us by raising money, promoting our work and our campaigns, securing media coverage, and introducing us to key people in their networks.

Leading local support

Presidents all over the country take a lead role in promoting Red Cross services in their local communities. They regularly host events that raise funds and awareness to help people in crisis. We are very grateful for the continued support of our presidents and proud to have such a committed group of supporters.
