The New Zealand Red Cross came into being during the First World War, and its centennial history, Across the Street Across the World will shortly be published. On World Red Cross Day, 8 May, its author, Margaret Tennant will talk about the many discoveries she made in writing about the Red Cross in peace and in war.

Whether providing education in International Humanitarian Law, parcels for POWs, meals on wheels, aid workers for international emergencies, nurses for Ebola patients, hospital library services or trauma support services after the Canterbury earthquakes, New Zealand Red Cross has proved itself a versatile and trusted source of humanitarian aid irrespective of colour, creed or belief.

Margaret Tennant was formally Professor of History at Massey University, and is best known for her work in the areas of women’s history and welfare history.

Soup and buns will be served from 6.30pm. Margaret Tennant's presentation will commence at 7pm. Please RSVP to the red Cross by emailing or phoning # 06 356 8152.
