After weeks of very hard work, the Collection/Sorting Depot at Richmond Hill* was opened on Saturday 21st November. This is a collaborative effort between Leeds City Council, Voluntary Action Leeds, Yorkshire Aid, Leeds City of Sanctuary and others.
Wonderful volunteers are sorting the donations into shoes, women’s, men’s, children’s clothes, bedding,toiletries, equipment etc and then local refugee organisations are collecting what they need and lorry loads of goods are being taken to refugees in Calais, Dunkirk and Greece. With the winter upon us now, people are dying from the cold and they need donations of EVERYTHING! We are asking everyone to clear their cupboards out and to send their donations to Richmond Hill.
