The British Red Cross has been a lifeline for people for 150 years. In the face of the coronavirus pandemic, that lifeline means more than ever.
In the face of an unprecedented crisis, the British Red Cross has been an invaluable resource to thousands of people. In the first half of 2020 alone, volunteers made over 30,000 food deliveries and 4,000 medicine deliveries, as well as helping over 10,000 patients get home safely from hospital.
The British Red Cross has also offered support to the British population by offering a national phone line. This initiative has allowed over 2,300 callers every month to receive emotional and practical help over the phone in this troubling time.
The funds provided by the Gamesys Foundation to the British Red Cross will go towards supporting individuals who may be suffering from social isolation, as well as physical or mental health issues at this time and beyond.
“We are proud to be associated with such a worthy cause, as a key ambition for the Foundation is to help prevent the deterioration of mental health and isolation in society ‘’ Neil Goulden, Gamesys Foundation Trustee
