Lady Angela Lamport, MBE
Lady Angela Lamport is a Red Cross President, fundraiser and a former member of the Board of Trustees and has been involved in key decisions for the charity seeing first-hand the impact of people’s generosity and support for the charity’s work.
Since joining the Red Cross as a volunteer in 2003, Angela has helped people affected by some of the decade’s most significant UK and international crises, including the Grenfell Tower Fire, where she supported survivors and bereaved families.
As a member of the British Red Cross Psychosocial Support Team, which offers emotional and practical support in a crisis, Angela has also helped Britons fleeing conflicts or disasters in countries including Zimbabwe and Libya.
“You realise that sometimes it is the small things that can make such a difference to someone at one of the lowest points in their lives. A kind word, a helping hand, a smile, a hug. It is at those moments one’s lives touch, and if by being there you can just make a little bit of difference to someone, it’s worth it in spades.”
