It’s lovely to write with good news – especially at the start of Refugee Week!

With 1 day to go, we made our Big Summer Give target to fund AFRIL’s Food Bank and Allotment of Refuge!

£7,500 of generous donations will now be matched by our wonderful pledgers and The Childhood Trust. Combined with gift aid, this means that together we have raised a whopping £16,013 to support refugee and vulnerable migrant children in our community.

Thank you to each and every one of you for donating, sharing and supporting our campaign!

We know that everyone’s budgets are being squeezed at the moment and I’m so proud that we’ve been able to achieve this together.

The Childhood Trust announced yesterday that the campaign will be extended by a week to support those charities who haven’t yet made their target. This means that our campaign page will still be open for donations until noon on 28th June if you missed out and want to get involved. Please bear in mind though that donations over the target will not be matched, although gift aid can be claimed for UK taxpayers which increases the value of each donation by 25%.

Again from all of us at AFRIL and the Food Bank team, a big…


From 12 noon today 14th June to 12 noon 21st June, all donations to AFRIL’s RIGHT TO EAT RIGHT campaign will be doubled!

Donate now, spread the word, and help us meet our ambitious target!


Your support will alleviate hunger and provide healthy, culturally appropriate food to refugee and migrant children in our community. Combining healthy foodbank parcels with fresh vegetables and fruit grown by families themselves at our Allotment of Refuge.
