YOUR HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

Recruiting for collectors.

You can make a difference to the lives of people when the bottom has dropped out of their world!

When someone has a house fire or flood, collapses in the street, breaks their leg or needs to get out of hospital, the British Red Cross steps in to help them.  Trained volunteers and staff support people rescued from fires, floods, provide vital first aid, lend a wheelchair or provide someone to lend a helping hand at home.

In the Hampshire area the British Red Cross loaned out 4,578 wheelchairs last year, provided first aid cover at various events including the New Forest show and helped people who leave hospital with their Support at Home service.  If you’re unlucky enough to have a flood or a fire you may well be meeting their volunteers too.

These vital services provide a much needed lifeline for people experiencing their own personal crisis.  Please help us to keep them going by taking part in a collection, either in a local store, or in the street, during the flagship event Red Cross Week in May 8 to May 14, and on the odd occasion throughout the year.  Contact either Ruth Crouch, our local Hythe volunteer on 078 1687 4587 or Margery Bradley, our local Lymington volunteer on 01590 674683 to see how you can help to make a difference.
