British Red Cross

What we’re all about

We're part of a national network of student groups helping support people in crisis. Get involved in advocacy, fundraising and discover amazing local and international volunteer opportunities with the Red Cross.

Fundraising & Socials

We hold regular fundraising events and volunteer socials which are a great chance to get to know like-minded students and people working at the heart of the British Red Cross. We also organise training courses, such as First Aid training and Mental Health Awareness training.


Membership is £3. This goes towards enabling us to finance any necessary costs for our fundraising events, for example buying ingredients for a bake sale. Most fundraising events are for anyone to come along to but we do run bucket collections and volunteering for events which require membership to get involved. Members will get discounts at our events and for our First Aid Training courses. If you want to join the committee you also need to have membership to apply.


Give It A Go!

We will be running our Give It A Go session on  Wednesday 6th November from 19:00-20:00 in the Pyramid Canteen in the Union.  We will give a small presentation about the British Red Cross and tell you all about how you can get involved. We will also be running a couple of fun activities such as a quiz and a brainstorming session where we will get to know each other better. Food and drink will be provided! Check out our Facebook event for more details:
