Wear Red for RedR tomorrow

Tomorrow is 'Wear Red for RedR' day, where we can raise money for the emergency engineering charity.

Engineering firms and institutions in the UK, Pakistan, India, USA and more will be wearing red and organising red-themed activities to support RedR's work, providing relief workers with the skills they need to make a difference and recruiting engineers to respond to disasters around the world.

The day is designed to raise funds and awareness of RedR's work in the humanitarian sector.

RedR supporters from across the engineering community wear a red item of clothing and take part in activities both in the UK and internationally. In 2007 the day raised £10,000.

You can take part by organising a quiz, lunch, raffle, auction of promises, book sale, bun and cake sales, or cook up some red food and cocktails.

We would like to thank the following Patrons and other key supporters who took part in 2007: Arup, the ICE, the ACE, the IMechE, Mott MacDonald, MWH, Benaim, the IHT, Black & Veach, Ably Shelters, Bradbrook Consulting, Bechtel, Campbell Reith Hill, Waterman Group, GWP consultants, Gifford and Haskoning, as well as individual RedR members and supporters.
