We make regular trips to northern France to offer volunteer support to refugee organisations and work hands on with refugee people.
We take with us donations of clothing, tents, sleeping bags and other essential items, which are distributed to people living in challenging conditions.
We welcome donations of needed items, which we sort and store here in Machynlleth before each trip.
What we need
The list of needed items often changes. Please check out Help Refugees’ updated list of most needed items here. Please also note the items that are not needed, and do not donate these (this wastes volunteers’ time.)
If you have items to donate, please contact us to arrange to drop them off.
If you live elsewhere in the UK, look here for drop-off points near you.
Another option is to purchase items directly in our shop. We ‘sell’ items that refugee people need (such as torches, sleeping bags, etc.) For each item you purchase, we buy one to take on our next trip and pass on where needed.
