Why we need your help
The British Red Cross plays a vital role in emergency response, and the ongoing, ever-changing situation concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is no exception.
In times of crisis, we’re here to help people. We’re local and we’re global and we’ve been doing this for 150 years. Our network of incredible staff and volunteers means we are uniquely placed to reach people in fearful, uncertain times.
But it’s the generosity of our supporters that enables our work to happen quickly and efficiently. We rely on your support to keep us going.
With your help, we’ll continue to provide vital humanitarian, individual support for the most vulnerable, and those who fall through the gaps.
There is someone who needs you today. Your donation can change their life.
Land Rover and the British Red Cross
Land Rover is supporting the Red Cross COVID-19 response through the loan of dozens of cars to Red Cross teams in Australia, UK, France, Spain and other countries.
Through its longstanding partnership with the British Red Cross and the International Federation of the Red Cross, Land Rover empowers communities to become prepared for uncertainty and disasters. Over the next 3 years Land Rover is funding vital disaster management programs in Australia, Italy, India, Mexico, UK and USA. In addition, Land Rover supports the Disaster Relief Alliance which, in 2019, contributed to the British Red Cross response to 20 global crises and a range of UK crises including flooding across multiple parts of England.
