Help us provide newly arrived refugees with essential clothing

Help us provide newly arrived refugees with essential clothing

One of the London hotels has seen a high number of new arrivals in the last two weeks, some of whom have only been in the UK for a few days. They arrive with nothing but the clothes they are wearing. Just to wash these clothes, they need something to change into.

Our local volunteers were fast to respond. Last weekend, a great team took over 100 New Arrival Packs to welcome them. Each pack contained:
2 x boxers
1 x socks
1 x jogging bottoms
1 x jumper
1 x tee shirt

The queues were orderly, the registration desks were functioning and the stock was flying out of the back of the car. A big thanks to Dorota, Alice, Solange, Leanne, Amar, Kasia, and Lucinda  for all their hard work.

We have now run out of jumpers and boxers, and desperately need more in order to make up more packs. Please can you help us by finding jumpers or raising money for boxers?

Thanks again everyone, for your continued generosity and support.
