Farnham Help for Refugees is holding a collection at St George’s Church, Badshot Lea, on Friday, October 8, 2.30-7pm, to support refugees, in particular those who have fled Afghanistan following the take-over of the country by the Taliban.
They are asking for winter clothes for men, women, children and babies, along with shoes, toiletries, baby goods, cleaning supplies, tents, blankets, sleeping bags, mobile phones, laptops, tablets and supermarket vouchers. See below for a full list.
With the Afghanistan refugee crisis escalating, many Afghans have fled their homes with few possessions and some of them are seeking refuge in this country. Farnham Help for Refugees is collecting donations to be distributed to refugees in and around London, and, thanks to an already overwhelming response, is now asking for just toiletries, men’s clothes and mobile phones.
If you can help, please bring donations to any of the church services – Sundays, St John’s at 9.30am, St George’s at 10am and St Mark’s at 11am; or Wednesdays, St Mark’s at 12pm, or drop them off at St John’s which is open during the day. There will be boxes available in each church. If you can’t come to the services but want to give, please call the administrator on 07842761919 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a specific collection day later in the year; we will let you know when.
Thank you for your help.
