We’re looking for donations of food and household supplies

We’re looking for donations of food and household supplies

Since the COVID-19 lockdown began we’ve been making dozens of weekly food deliveries, been running our socially distant foodbank, and organised regular virtual activities, classes, casework support, and informal checkins and chats. Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in our patch of London need support more than ever, and the members of our community here at West London Welcome have stepped up to support each other every single day.

We’re still collecting for our COVID-19 Emergency Hardship Appeal, which we’re pleased to report has been generously donated to, but which we would love more donations for, so we can continue supporting the members of our community who really need our help at the moment.

Can you donate any of these food and household supplies?

We’re now also looking for the following items for our weekly food deliveries and foodbank, which we’re increasingly finding are in short supply. These items will go directly to the local refugees, asylum seekers and migrants we support who are in real need and can’t afford to go for a weekly shop at the moment. If you can help donate any of the below items, please drop them between 9.30 – 11am on Mondays or Thursdays at West London Welcome, Hammersmith Quaker Meeting House, 20 Nigel Playfair Avenue, London W6 9JY.
