Even if you can’t be there, you can help

Across the UK, many are wondering how they’ll put food on the table, pay the bills and cope with money pressures. Some are struggling with the emotional strain of it all.

We’re here to get people through it. Please donate today, and pledge what you can. By supporting the British Red Cross, you’re helping someone who needs it, when they need it, however they need it.

Even if you can’t deliver it, you can get food to a family that’s been forced to skip meals. Even if you can’t drive them, you can make sure that someone coming home from hospital has everything they need and can switch the heating on. 

Donate today. If you have kindness, you have power.
