Why we need your help
The coronavirus outbreak is the greatest global health emergency in living memory. It is affecting the way we all go about our daily lives.
In these uncertain times, small acts of kindness can make a huge difference.
Team GB and the British Red Cross
The British Red Cross is the official charity partner of Team GB – together, we aim to inspire the British public to come together and make a positive difference.
Whilst the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games have now been postponed to 2021, we have launched the #IsolationGames, challenging British athletes and the public to creatively recreate the summer of sport in their own home.
Although we’re apart, kindness – and virtual challenges! – will keep us together
For over 150 years, the British Red Cross has supported people in the UK in times of crisis. The ongoing, ever-changing situation concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is no exception. 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.
