British Red Cross volunteers are never short of motivation when it comes to helping people in need. And as our chief executive Mike Adamson has been finding out, they have had a particularly busy festive period.
It has been a hugely testing few weeks for communities affected by flooding. It’s difficult to imagine the hardship people are going through.
Countless homes and businesses have been damaged, while roads and bridges have been swept away. There is little we can do to stem the force of the flood waters, but we can help people recover.
