Help us reach £1 million this Red Cross Week, and make a real difference to those in need of our help.

Red Cross Week is an annual week of special fundraising events across the country, and also marks the birthday of Henry Dunant, who founded the Red Cross movement in 1863.

People up and down the country will be taking part in cake sales, coffee mornings and street collections to raise vital funds to bring hope for people in crisis at home and across the world.

From transporting elderly and more vulnerable patients home from hospital here in the UK, to supporting those who continue to be trapped by the horrific violence in Syria, the Red Cross is still there saving lives and bringing comfort to those in desperate need.

Without your support we would not be able to help thousands of people across the world each day, and it is because of supporters like you that we can continue to be there, wherever and whenever we are needed.

Send your donation today to be a part of Red Cross Week and make a world of difference to people in crisis.
