Donating clothing, bedding, food and other items
We currently have two drop off locations in Cambridge where you can leave donations, listed below.
We always require blankets, sleeping bags, phones with chargers, torches, and small and medium men’s clothes – especially hats, scarves and shoes.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT DUVETS, LARGE MENS CLOTHING, OR WOMEN OR CHILDREN’S CLOTHING
The list on the right outlines what we’re currently collecting – but we will also always accept anything on Help Refugees’ needs list.
FOOD: WE CANNOT ACCEPT VEGETABLES OR OTHER FRESH FOOD, but will accept anything else that is on Refugee Community Kitchen’s needs list.
If you have a large amount of donations (i.e. more than a car boot full), please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a suitable time and place to drop them off – or you can bring them to one of our weekend drop off days, see the events page to find out when and where the next one is.
