Join Team Red Cross and fundraise for us.

I’ve held a fundraising event. How do I send you the money that I raised?

Please complete a donation return form (PDF) and send it to us. Thank you!

I’ve already signed up to take part in an event. I’d like to ask people to sponsor me to raise money for the British Red Cross. What’s the best way to do this?

It’s easy to join our team. Simply register your interest and tell us more about the event you’re taking part in.
We won’t ask for a minimum sponsorship. Just raise as much as you can to help our work.

To collect sponsorship, please use this sponsorship form (PDF). It’s even easier if you set up a page on JustGiving, then people can sponsor you online.

I’d like to raise funds for a specific appeal. How do I do this?

The first step is to make contact with your local British Red Cross fundraiser. Drop us a line on 0300 456 1005 (calls charged at your phone operator’s UK landline rate) or email us at

Your local fundraiser will let you know which appeals are still open. They’ll also let you know about the best way to raise funds.

Can I raise funds as part of a group?

Fundraising with friends, family or colleagues is a lot of fun. Just team up and think of ways to raise money. Then drop us a line and let us know your plans.

If you want to join a fundraising group, we can help. Get in touch on 0300 456 1005 (calls charged at your phone operator’s UK landline rate) or email us at

We’ll put you in contact with your local fundraiser. They’ll let you know if there are any fundraising groups in your area that you can join.
