Team Red Cross

You did us proud with your fundraising prowess last week – and there’s still plenty of time to send in your life-saving cash.

Red Cross Week may be over for another year, but that doesn’t mean the fun ends here.

You can still get your fix of amazing challenges and events over the coming months: from family-friendly walks to moonlit cycle rides.

In the meantime, let’s look back on what you got up to over six action-packed days.

Hair-raising antics

You certainly pulled out all the stops to raise money. Some of you lost hair, dignity and the ability to sit down in your bid to help out a good cause.

Red shoes made for walking

Some of you signed up for something more civilised: ambling around London for a fun and friendly eight-mile walk. Not only did you cross off the big tourist sights, but it was a laid back way to keep fit and healthy.

This London trip was just the first Red Shoe Walk of the season, so you can still take part in others planned during the summer. They’re taking place all over the country.

Bucket-shaking good times

Loads of you shook buckets and asked passers-by for donations. Some of you also went to every possible length to get noticed.

We also had some more unusual bucket shakers, who certainly drew in the crowds.

28,240 Lego bricks

Some young supporters even turned our emblem into a giant Lego structure.

It seems like there really is no end to your creativity or enthusiasm.

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in Red Cross Week 2015. We’ll be counting up the donations for a while yet, but are hopefully on track to beat our £1m target. You’ll be the first to know if we do.
