This is the day that Red Cross societies in 163 countries highlight their work of caring for people in crisis. 1995 is important to us as it is the 125th birthday of the British Red Cross, and 8 May is one of three designated days when we acknowledge our links with the Second World War.
It will be a day for fundraising through birthday parties and other major events throughout the UK. Our national event will be at Guildhall in London. The bank holiday is a real bonus to us, and we are glad that the British public will now be in a position to celebrate with us.
