REFUGEE WEEK 2017: FUNDRAISING

For Refugee Week this year, from 19-26 June, we want to celebrate the contribution refugees have had in our communities, and bring people together to have a good time whilst raising much-needed funds for the 70+ projects doing incredible work on-the-ground to help refugees. To help you help, we’re asking all our supporters across the country to run two types of fundraisers in their local communities – Supper Clubs with friends and a friendly bake-off at work.

These events are simple and easy to set up. And we’ve created a step-by-step guide for both to help you see get started.

Help Refugees only exists because of the generosity of people like you. Even though we’ve grown quickly over the past year and a half, most of our funds are still generated by individuals and community groups.

The war in Syria has been the biggest man-made disaster since World War 2. And while the news media may have moved on, there are still hundreds of thousands of refugees in Europe that need our help. We are funding more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East – find out more about our work here.

Donate here to help us help them.
