THE Portsmouth branch of the British Red Cross is due to officially celebrate opening its doors in a new location this week.
Staff and volunteers, who provide services to hundreds of vulnerable people, will be joined by Quentin Wallop, the 10th Earl of Portsmouth, on Wednesday.
The charity moved to the office, in Commercial Road, earlier this year to better support people facing crises in the city, and Hampshire.
Staff previously based in Winchester and offices located in All Saints Church, Portsmouth, moved into the new premises which offer more space and much-improved facilities.
Sue Best, area support manager at the Red Cross, said: ‘We are all looking forward to welcoming the Earl of Portsmouth to our new offices to celebrate our new location.’
