  • British Red Cross celebrate volunteers as part of their national week - 06 to 12 May 2018

    Created: 08/05/2018

    British Red Cross are celebrating their volunteers as part of their national week. 

    Renowned photographer Rankin has captured some of their remarkable volunteers in a new series, celebrating those who’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others. 

    The series features people like Laszlo Kelemen, 33, an intensive care practitioner from London, who started volunteering with the charity in his home country of Romania when he was just 15 years old. Last year Laszlo was part of the charity’s response to the London Bridge attack, Grenfell Tower fire and Finsbury Park attack, providing psychosocial support to those affected.

    More than 1,000 British Red Cross volunteers work alongside emergency services to offer support and solidarity to local communities. They provided first aid; gave emotional and practical support at rest centres; helped people who were bereaved or searching for missing loved ones; managed a 24-hour support line; and sorted through tons of items generously donated by the public.
