We probably take getting a new pair of shoes for granted, but for asylum seekers living on just over £5 a day it’s a budget-busting purchase.

Shoes and socks are reported as something a lot of the people we support are lacking at the moment. And as the weather starts to get colder, a sturdy pair of trainers and some fresh socks are essential.

So it’d be fantastic if you could donate any of the following items:

  • new/lightly worn trainers, sizes 8-12
  • new packs of socks, sizes 8-12

Please clearly label the size of your donations and drop them off at:

Castle Gate, Melbourne Street, Newcastle NE1 2JQ

between 10am – 12pm on Wednesdays

or call 07826 266 630.

Thank you so much – it makes a huge difference to people.
