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 free! If you want to join the committee you also need to have membership to apply. 

Pub Quiz!

We will be running a Pub Quiz in collaboration with the East Asian Research Society on Thursday 5th March from 20:00-23:00 in the Lending Room in the Library Pub.  Amazing prizes are available and all profit made will go to the British Red Cross. Check out our Facebook event for more details:

First Aid Training

We will be running a First Aid training session with St John's Ambulance Society on Wednesday 11th March 15:00-17:00 in Union Room 4. The session is free, but spaces are limited, so please reserve your place by getting a free ticket.

Annual General Meeting

We will be electing the new committee for next year at our AGM on Wednesday 18th March, 17.30-19.00 in Union Room 1. Being a member of the LUU BRC committee is an incredibly rewarding experience and it gives you the opportunity to improve important skills, such as organisation, teamwork and responsibility. Roles available are:

President - the big boss, in charge of delegating tasks to the other committee members, watching over the society, and communicating with members of the British Red Cross Charity

Secretary - the power behind the crown, in charge of all things LUU, requires a lot of organisation

Treasurer - the money bags, in charge of society funds and setting fundraising targets!

Fundraising Co-ordinator - responsible for organising fundraisers with any members and big fundraising events, kind of like a social sec, also takes over a lot of social media presence

If you are interested in becoming a committee member, please email your manifesto to us at by Tuesday 17th March. Good luck!
