Turning Lives Around Through Environmental Regeneration, Fashion and the Arts
The British Red Cross International Fund Raising Committee chose a Brazilian Gala Ball 'Brazil Now', to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen's Diamond Jubilee on Tuesday 6 November 2012.

The honorary patrons were His Excellency Roberto Jaguaribe, The Ambassador of Brazil and Mrs Cinara de Lima.

A fund raising committee was set up for this event:

Chairman Monica Hunt
Vice Chairman
Claudia Ferro
Cristina Carneiro de Mendonça

Working in partnership with the members of the executive committee they set up the organisational aspects of the Ball, the fund raising, as well as the involvement and commitment of the Brazilian community.

The ball was an outstanding success and a quarter of a million pounds was raised for the British Red Cross.

This was a memorable landmark in Cristinas humanitarian endeavours.
