Donations for our Free Shop

What we need

Most Bristol Refugee Rights members live in poverty and we are grateful to receive good quality donations. Our free shop welcomes donations of:

  • Clean clothes and shoes for men, women and children—men’s clothes are the most useful. Please only donate clothes that are relevant to the season; we cannot store coats until winter or shorts until summer.
  • Small household items such as kitchen equipment, but NO electrical items please.
  • Non-perishable food, especially tins of tuna, peanut butter, bags of rice, biscuits etc.
  • Toiletries, especially shower gel, toothpaste and toothbrushes, razors, and sanitary towels.
  • Small toys.

We do not accept: car seats, furniture, electrical items, buggies, books, or underwear.

How to donate

If you have a donation please:

1. label all bags clearly “for BRR”;

2. bring them on Wednesday or Friday from 10-12.30 or Thursday 10-2.30 to The Malcolm X Centre, 141 City Road, Bristol BS2 8YH. Please do not leave items at any other time!

Due to very limited storage please do not bring large donations; for example more than 1 large bag (or black bag) full at a time.

If you have larger items or any other questions please email

Thanks for your support.
