Refugee Support in Cumbria

Each year, Cumbria comes together to support Refugees by hosting various events on Mitzvah Day. For Mitzvah Day 2022 they are asking for help with the following projects:

We need good quality male clothes and shoes mainly warm ideally aged age 18 - 30. These can be sent to Mitzvah Day Clothes Collection, Adrienne Gill, c/o Carlisle World Shop, 1 Lowthians Lane, English Street, Carlisle, CA3 8JR.

We are looking for volunteers who are driving instructors or people who have passed their Advanced Driving Test who can work remotely. All training will be provided.

Provision of IT equipment for Refugees

We are looking for volunteer IT engineers who can assist in refurbishing laptops. Including any IT students. Please contact Abigail Mann by email to find out how you can help to support refugees -
