Story

The Refugee Council is a leading charity working with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK and exists to support and empower people who have made the heart breaking decision to flee conflict, violence and persecution in order to rebuild their lives here in the UK.

They work with over 13,000 women, men and children each year who are desperately seeking safety and this number is only set to increase over the coming year.

The Charity Shop Gift Card is partnering with the Refugee Council and the Charity Retail Association to raise funds for gift cards so that people arriving in the UK can shop with dignity and choice in the charity shops on their local high streets.

Charity shops offer a huge range of brands and styles – here’s how your donations could be spent:

£5 could buy a coat or pair of shoes

£10 could buy books, toys and baby items for a child refugee who has left everything behind

£20 could buy a selection of clothing basics

£100 could buy many of the essential items a family would need to start rebuilding their lives

“Charity shops are great places for refugees to acquire the things they need for everyday life, that could be clothing for the whole family, household goods and furniture, and so much more. The Charity Shop Gift Card is a fantastic and risk-free way of allowing refugee organisations to help such people in their hours and days of need.”

100% of donated funds will be loaded onto gift cards and distributed by the Refugee Council to people that they are supporting. Unspent funds on expired cards will be returned to the fundraising total to be loaded onto further cards.
