Legacy events

Join us at a legacy event and hear about the difference gifts in wills can make to someone’s future.

The legacy events team outside of Athelhamptom House

Leaving a gift to the British Red Cross in your will can make a real difference. It means we can continue to help people who have been struck by disaster and need support in an emergency.

If you want to know more about the impact your generous gift could make on the lives of others, then join us at a legacy event.

Taking place throughout the UK, our events give you the chance to understand what a donation can achieve and get to know more about the vital work the British Red Cross carries out in the UK and internationally.

"It has given me an insight into the complexity of the Red Cross and the logistics of working in volatile conflict areas of the world.

Lovely to talk to some of the people who are directly involved."

- Attendee at Mansion House event, Bristol, June 2023
