Donating to us

When refugees arrive here, they have nothing. They sometimes have not even had time to grab one favourite thing to remind them of home and family. Even if they have, it often becomes impossible to keep it on their journeys.
This is where your donations make such a difference. Bedfordshire has been incredibly generous with its donations – mostly nearly new clothes, sometimes even brand new, so that the newcomers can regain some dignity. Please continue to donate clothing, shoes, hygiene products – in fact, any of the many things we take for granted every day. Thank you.
We believe that, together, we can make a difference. Please help us…
Donating funds

We are grateful for all donations, whether it be money or other much-needed personal or household items.


Friends of Refugees organisers try to make sure that every single penny raised helps us to help those in need. With this in mind, we raise funds in a variety of other ways for essential promotional and running costs – which we try to keep as low as possible.

Donating goods

Of course we appreciate that not everyone has money to spare, so donated items are also more than welcome.

The generous citizens of Bedfordshire continue to donate tons of indoor and outdoor clothing, shoes, toiletries, bedding, tents, toys and games etc. which we then transport to camps abroad as well as helping those refugees in need across Bedfordshire.
