Wear Red for RedR 2017!

20 February 2017

Friday 10th February marked our annual Wear Red fundraising day – and what a day it was!

Patrons and corporate supporters across the globe dressed to impress in their finest red attire, baking cakes, hosting quizzes and even growing (and eating!) their own chillies in support of RedR’s humanitarian work.
 
From Australia to the USA, South Africa to the UK, over 120 offices across the globe got involved, showing enthusiasm far and wide! This year we also gained support from new regions including Colombia and Korea, helping us to make Wear Red bigger and better than ever before. 
 
Over 35 different companies took part, including AECOM, Arup, Atkins, JLT, Mace Group Ltd, Mott MacDonald, Tony Gee and Partners LLP, Ramboll and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff. And of course RedR HQ got involved here in London. Our keen bakers came up trumps and we were able to fill our boots alongside all our amazing supporters!
 
A huge thank you to everyone who took part – your support makes an enormous difference to RedR and the communities we reach across the globe. We are still counting cash to confirm a final total from all the generous donations that were received. Watch this space for an announcement in the coming few weeks!
 
Thanks also to everyone shared photos on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook! There was an amazing selection, and we've collated the best for you to check out here
 
Finally, we would like to again thank all of our Patrons and corporate supporters across the globe for their constant enthusiasm and commitment. Thanks to you, we are able to continue providing humanitarian training and support to vulnerable communities across the globe.
