Start your year with a good deed

17th January, 2022

WE HAVE partnered with local charity One Community Link to host a donation drive this January that will collect items to help asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in Teesside.

The initiative is asking the community to start the year with a good deed and to help those who are seeking sanctuary in Teesside, who are restarting their lives and have very limited resources.

Your donations can really make a difference in their new lives here in the Teesside community.

January is a great time to have a clear out to make room for the Christmas gifts you received, so it is the perfect time to support this initiative and with lots of January sales still running you could easily buy a few items to donate without having to spend much at all.

It’s easy to think that once people arrive in the UK, their journey to safety is over. However, regardless of how they arrive, people who come to the UK seeking safety face a number of issues here which threaten their dignity, their safety, and in some cases, their lives.

Items can be donated at the donation station in Castlegate shopping centre, located outside B&M.   Donations can be made between Monday 17th January and Monday 28th February 2022.
