Clothing needed for asylum-seekers and refugees

Since 2015, Ripon City of Sanctuary has been collecting donations for asylum-seekers and refugees in the wider region. We make fortnightly visits to the Initial Accommodation Centre, Urban House, Wakefield; around 100 asylum-seekers arrive at Wakefield each week, and very many have almost no clothes. We also take donations to Open Doors, a project based at Princes Avenue Methodist Church in Hull.

We are very grateful for the generosity of many people in Ripon and the surrounding villages, who have regularly given good-quality clothing for men, women, and children of all ages.

We currently need:

  • Good-quality warm winter clothes, including coats/jackets
  • Good-quality second-hand shoes
  • Towels
  • New underwear for children
  • PLUS buggies/pushchairs.

Where to leave your donations

Donations should be taken to Allhallowgate Methodist Church, Ripon. Bins marked up for donations can be found to the left-hand side of the new doors.
