The camp at Calais has been closed down, but the need to support desperate refugees is greater than ever. It is Winter, and many refugees across France, Greece and Europe are homeless or sleeping in very poor, cold and damp accommodation. Sheffield Donations for Refugees are supporting small, effective charities in Northern France, Paris and Greece, to help keep people warm, dry and safe this winter. The group also collect donations to send to refugees in Syria.

It is open on Mondays and Thursdays from 11am to 1pm. Please come along and help! Donations can also be left DURING OPENING HOURS (Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm) at Meersbrook Hall reception .
