One year on and looking towards the future…

Hull Help for Refugees VolunteersFrom our initial start of packed out public meetings and standing - bewildered - surrounded by mountains of donations; we have come a long, long way.

We have had so many success stories and have all been on a steep learning curve. Lifelong friendships have been formed within a growing group of selfless, inspirational people who believe that individuals can help other individuals when they need it, irrespective of their location.

None of this crazy, snowballing journey would have been possible without the wonderful, caring individuals in Hull and the surrounding area who keep on supporting and donating.

We are continually overwhelmed by the generosity we see for people you may never meet.

So where do we go from here?

Firstly, it is important that we keep the donations and support coming in, and we will keep spreading the word about our work as well as informing people on how they can help.

Secondly, we are in the process of becoming a registered charity and further developing our website which will help establish us as an official organisation.

We will also continue to hold regular meetings to make sure we focus and prioritise our efforts based on the latest updates coming from our contacts in the camps, and only send goods where they are wanted and needed.
