Celebrating the achievements of people is important. Throughout our 150-year history, we have had countless kind and resilient volunteers work with us at the British Red Cross. These people are recognised for their kindness. We celebrate Black History Month by highlighting and recognising the contributions of some Black British Humanitarians.
