Christmas appeal for Refuweegee

Refuweegee is a community-led charity that gives people a way to welcome and embrace refugees arriving in our country. They strive to ensure that people who have been forced to flee their homes arrive in Scotland to a warm welcome and some of the things that will help people to feel more at home here.

Tribe Porty is acting as a donation point for items that Refuweegee will deliver to families in need in time for Christmas.

There are a few different ways you can support:

Essentials Appeal

We’re collecting non-perishable food (pasta, rice, tins of soup and vegetables and tea and coffee etc), toiletries (soap, razors, nappies, loo roll). Full list here.

Welcome Pack Appeal

Make up a Welcome pack for an adult, teenager or child. Full instructions are here. A small age appropriate gift would be a lovely thing to include and please remember to label your child or teenager pack with the age of the child it’s intended for.

Clothing donations

We are also collecting the following items:

  • Warm jackets for all ages and sizes
  • Hats and gloves for all ages and sizes
  • Men’s scarves

How to donate

Bring your donations to Tribe by 5pm on Thursday 10th December so we can make our prearranged drop off appointment at Refuweegee HQ in time for their Christmas deliveries.

Please email More@tribeporty.org to let us know in advance that you have a donation to drop off so we can give you directions and make sure this is done safely.

You can also make a cash donation here.

Thank you for helping to make a difference to Scotland’s refugee community.
