HORSHAM Red Cross volunteers will celebrate 100 years of the Australian Red Cross on Monday.

All past and present members of the Horsham unit are invited to celebrate the centenary with a meeting and memorabilia display from 1.30pm at Horsham Library.

The celebrations started early for Horsham Red Cross Shop volunteers on Friday.

They received gift vouchers and an afternoon tea for National Volunteer Week.

Shop manager Lynne Eckersley said she and her 23 volunteers were proud of the work they did for the organisation.

“I feel quite proud of the money we raise when there’s a tsunami or something and Red Cross is first on the line,” she said.
