Shake things up this Red Cross Week

Fabulous fundraising events. People making donations. Friendly collectors on the street…

Red Cross Week is our favourite time of year!

Red Cross Week ties in with World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day. This is an annual celebration of our Movement’s work across the world. It’s celebrated on 8 May each year.

During Red Cross Week, people across the UK come together to help raise money for people in crisis. 

Here at home, the money you raise could help support people who need extra help when they come home from hospital. Or it could help us to teach first aid skills that save lives.

And, of course, we’re part of the largest humanitarian network in the world. Your kindness during Red Cross Week could help make sure the Red Cross and Red Crescent can be there when the worst happens.


Register you interest below. We'd love you to be part of it!
