Give without paying
Believe it or not there are loads of fantastic ways you can raise funds for Refuge – at no cost to you!
Do you have clothes you no longer want or need?
If so, you can now log-on to clothes for charity and turn them into cash for Refuge. Simply request a donation bag, arrange a convenient collection time and they will turn your clothes into a donation. For every tonne of clothing we collect, we will raise £200. There’s a minimum weight of 15kg. Clothes must be in a good, reusable condition.
