How to donate
If you bring things we don’t want, or at times when we’re not open, you may actually be causing us more trouble than help!
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. We are unable to collect donations.
If you have larger items or any other questions please email andrew@ bristolrefugeerights.org or call 07846 332172
If your items for donation don’t fit the criteria listed above we would also recommend that you contact the AID Box Community to see if they would like your items. Their details are on their website https://www.aidboxcommunity.co.uk/
Thanks for your support.
