Participants will need to raise minimum amounts - with all funds going to support the charity's projects worldwide.

RedR UK was founded by civil engineer Peter Guthrie at an ICE symposium in 1980 and provides training and technical support to NGOs, aid workers and communities responding to natural and man-made disasters all over the world. RedR UK is one of our ICE 200 People and Projects.
