which well-known figure that they thought could best handle a
crisis. Of the diverse list of names, Tony Blair came top with 21%,
but was closely followed by Sir Alan Sugar with 18% and Condoleezza
Rice with 8% of the vote in the North. Dame Ellen MacArthur, Gordon
Ramsay, Winston Churchill and Sven Goran Eriksson were also named as
some of the best people to have around during a crisis.
Red Cross Week is the annual fundraising
and awareness-raising week for the British Red Cross. This year, the
charity is asking the British public to help it to be there for
people in a crisis, by donating money. The life saving work of the
Red Cross is largely funded by the generosity of the British public
and the charity aims to raise up to £1million. All money will go
towards supporting vulnerable people in crisis, both in the UK and

“In our poll, the public have nominated people from all walks of
life; individuals who have either experienced a crisis or exhibit
the determination and resolve that suggests they would cope very
well. As the country’s leading voluntary crisis response
organisation, helping people to cope in a crisis is precisely what
the British Red Cross does everyday of the year. If you haven’t
