Thanks to our friends in Children’s World, we now have an active donation drop point in Glastonbury! This is fantastic news, as in 2015 we started collecting aid for refugees in Glastonbury, Frome and Bruton: now we can offer this service locally in all three towns again.
Children’s World are an amazing local charity, who work with children both in the UK and abroad. We have collaborated with them before, as they have transported trailers full of aid donations from RAISE to Calais when they have been running their fun-based workshops with refugee children in the camps.
Now they have kindly offered to be a satellite donation drop point for people in the Glastonbury area who want to donate items of aid to refugees via RAISE. Sorting and packing will still be done in our main warehouse space in Frome, where we welcome volunteers 13.30 – 15.30 on Monday afternoons.
Donations will be accepted in Glastonbury between 13.00 and 15.00 on Friday afternoons (except Bank Holidays). Please only donate the items listed on our regular list, which you can find here. Aid will be given to refugees resettled locally as well as to those in to Europe, the Middle East, and beyond.
The address is Children’s World, 28 Northload Street, Glastonbury BA6 9JJ. Click here for a map.
