Donate items

Please note: COVID-19 restrictions mean that we can’t reliably transport donations to France right now, but you can still help by collecting the desperately-needed items listed below. When restrictions are lifted, we’ll help you get your items to where they’re needed most. 

We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters to provide the aid we send to Calais, and the funds we use to help refugees. We have no employees, no offices, and thus minimal administrative costs, so you can be sure any money you give goes directly to help those in need.

Donating most needed items

  • Tents (2,3,4,5,6 person)
  • Sleeping bags Blankets (thick)
  • Trainers and walking boots (sizes 8-9.5) (mens)
  • New boxer shorts
  • Skinny jeans and joggers (sizes 28-38) (mens)
  • Waterproof jackets (mens)
  • Women’s leggings
  • New women’s underwear

If you have a large amount of donations (i.e. more than a car boot full), please email info@refugeecompassion.org to arrange a suitable time and place to drop them off.

If you have a potential venue we could use for future drop off days – e.g. a church or village hall, sports club or community centre – please do email us.

Any donations we receive that cannot be used by refugee organisations will be donated to local charities or food banks as appropriate.
