British Red Cross
The British Red Cross is the United Kingdom branch of the respected and impartial humanitarian organisation, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Well-known for its role in delivering crucial aid worldwide, the British Red Cross also helps people in crisis domestically, as part of its integrated response strategy around global conflicts, natural disasters and other emergencies. The British Red Cross also helps people locally, for example in the Berkshire region, where the charity provides a range of health and support services to people of all generations.
Redwood Technologies has a history of ongoing support for the charity and makes regular donations, marking the British Red Cross as its primary international charity.
Latest donation – 1st July 2016
On Friday 1st July, Redwood Technologies made a donation of £10,000 to the British Red Cross, marking its latest contribution in a long history of ongoing support for the charity. Company Founders Sean Taylor and Martin Taylor presented the cheque to Berkshire representatives of the medical charity at Redwood’s UK headquarters in Bracknell.
Redwood’s most recent donation will go towards the Red Cross’s efforts in the Berkshire region, where the charity provides a range of health and support services to people of all generations. This includes providing volunteer first aid support at local events, delivering first aid training, helping those who have recently been discharged from hospital to regain independence, offering vital support for those affected by crisis by providing transport for medical appointments and daily essential needs, and giving front-line support in the event of natural disasters, such as fire and floods.
Martin Taylor, CMO of Redwood Technologies, commented:
“The British Red Cross is so well-known for its international humanitarian aid that it is often easy to overlook the crucial support that the charity gives to so many people right here on our doorstep. Redwood has always been committed to giving back to the community and supporting local causes, notably through our work with the Berkshire Community Foundation. We are therefore delighted to be in a position to offer ongoing support to a fantastic charity like the British Red Cross, which helps to transform the lives of so many people both at home and abroad.”
