How To Donate

Our normal packing sessions remain suspended but limited activities are starting again!

Most collection, sorting and packing activities have been suspended. Donations of aid can be received on
Fridays 31st July, then 7-14-21-28th August from 13.30 t0 15.00 ONLY
at Horley Baptist Church CAR PARK.

All donations will be loaded to our van and transported to our warehouse in Billingshurst for sorting and packing. The warehouse will be open to receive deliveries on each Saturday morning during August. Access at other times is limited to authorised personnel only.
Our collection boxes at our Billingshurst warehouse and at St Francis Church, Horley, will be accessible 24-7 as usual.
See our How to Donate page for the location of these boxes.
Parcel delivery arrangements remain suspended.

International travel restrictions and lockdown constraints are limiting the practicalities of sending goods at present. A lorry from Billingshurst has recently arrived in Dorohoi but lorry departures from south Wales are postponed pending clarification of transport arrangements.

Thank you for your support.
