We educate people in life-saving skills, enabling them to respond to emergencies.
We sell and need: good quality clothes, designer brands, books, furniture and more.
Pensioner Mary Jenkins was facing a tough time alone at home – until our volunteer called round to help.
After a stroke landed him in hospital for ten months, Randolph wasn’t ready to face the world again – until we lent a hand.
Nobody enjoys the dentist, but Ann’s dental phobia meant she hadn’t had a check-up for 40 years – and she was in painful misery.
When disabled pensioner Maureen Gallagher needed extra support at home, the Red Cross stepped in to help.
After her leg was amputated, Lorna Williams was desperate to return home – but didn’t realise how difficult it would be coping alone.
Our volunteers are always willing to go the extra mile to help people – even if that means belting out a song or two.
From giving people confidence to doing a weekly shop, our volunteers help people to live independently in their own home.
