Our shops sell your donations to fund the work of the British Red Cross. The Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies – both in the UK and across the world.
Just think about how the pennies you spend at your local Red Cross charity shop could help people in crisis:

£1.70 could buy one family-sized mosquito net to protect against malaria
£2.50 could buy a foil blanket to keep disaster victims warm
£10.20 could equip a family with a kitchen set
£70 could provide emergency-response training for volunteers
£102 could provide a family with a tent when their home has been destroyed
