How To Donate

Our usual activities in Horley and Billingshurst have been suspended. Current restrictions mean that we will not be able to resume person-to-person activities such as collections and packing whilst they are in force. This also means that we cannot resume warehouse activities in Billingshurst. Restarting normal activities in May seems unlikely and resuming later will be dependent upon restrictions in force at that time.
Activities in south Wales are similarly subject to local restrictions.
However, our activities in Romania are able to continue using existing stocks and under some limitations - see the AN site for news from our team in Dorohoi.
Important - Our 24/7 deposit boxes cannot be emptied during this period - please do not use them until restrictions on movement have been relaxed.


The following information is suspended during the period of lockdown restrictions
