 Donation requests 


Guest travel money is a large expense for us. It would therefore be much appreciated if you could either donate an Oyster card topped up with minimum £9 or make a monetary donation so that we can top up guests Oysters.


We really appreciate donations of good quality second hand clothing (trousers, T-shirts, coats, shoes, belts, hats, scarves, gloves), towels, toiletries, new socks and underwear, bedding (to fit single beds), non-perishable food. Although we have very limited storage space, we also try to support our recently resettled guests to get hold of kitchen appliances, household basics and furniture for their new home. Please do get in touch with us if you would like to donate resources. 

Frequently, guests also ask us if we have any rucksacks and sleeping bags that they can have. If you have any spare one, please give it a second life and donate it to us.
