(If you can't spare £100, no problem, any small donation will help toward transportation costs.

£1 can pay for the transportation of up to 4 pairs of shoes, so please dont think small contributions wont help!)

You made a real difference by sponsoring pallets of much needed aid for the emergency convoy out to the island of Samos following the fire in the warehouse. This appeal is ongoing as we will be using the donations for the next round of aid which will be sent out in the Spring.

Here are a couple of shots of the pallets before being unloaded from the October convoy:

Sponsoring a pallet pays for the transportation costs of getting this aid from A to B and can make all the difference to many people's lives. 

The pallets are packed with a variety of goods such as:

  • Bedding 
  • Inflatable mattresses 
  • Thermal socks
  • 8 man tents
  • Towels
  • Toys 
  • Food

In particular for the Janaury convoy there will also be many pallets of childrens clothing and shoes as these were badly destroyed by the fire.  If you are collecting shoes and wish to particularly sponsor this type of pallet, please get in touch and we will endeavour to ensure that we accommodate your request.

By sponsoring a pallet you could be providing any of those items, or it could be:

  • a pallet worth £50,000 (of toothbrushes for example) or
  • a pallet worth £100 but with a project value that’s priceless (second hand sewing machines worth very little on ebay, but invaluable to the refugees to establish a cottage industry type clothing repair and clothes making enterprise).

The pallets are £100 to sponsor, but if you cant manage that, dont worry, a few pounds to the general 2020 fundrasing also helps!
