Fundraising for New Zealand Red Cross

When we each do a little bit of good, together we can make a big difference. Last year, Team Red Cross raised an amazing $10,000! All the money raised by Team Red Cross goes towards New Zealand Red Cross doing good in communities here and overseas.

How do I join the team?

Contact Inge De Leeuw (Inge.Deleeuw@redcross.org.nz or 027 205 1458) at our Wellington Service Centre for more information. If you can't attend all the training sessions, we still want to hear from you!
