GRACE-Greenwich Refugee Aid & Community Enterprise
18 Leegate, London, United Kingdom

Based in Leegate shopping centre (Lee Green) South-East London: collecting, packing, distributing donations urgently needed in Greece and other locations. Registered charity no: 1169544. Set up on 30 October 2015, to respond to the growing refugee crisis, to send aid to those in need along the migration route. We send clothing donations and essential supplies to (but not limited to) France, Greece and Syria. We also support similar groups and charities with their projects in the UK and beyond. We are a strong and motivated team from the local community with representation from all walks of life. We have run larger-scale collection and packing events from local community buildings (such as schools and the Town Hall) as well as helping other local groups to fulfil their projects in between. We continue to help refugees locally, as well as supporting local charities and community services through links with Citizens UK, AFRIL, Lewisham Brighter Beginnings, Anti-Human Trafficking, Homestart, FoodBank. Our address: 18 Leegate, SE12 8SS - Open for drop-offs Weds/Thurs mornings 10-12pm. Additional collection points: Kumon Greenwich Study Centre, St Marks Centre, 22 Greenwich South St, SE10 8TY: Tues (4-6pm); Sat 1-3pm. Please contact in advance if you intend to bring a large donation to Kumon. Deli X on Deptford High St, open 8.30am-5.30pm. We are networked with other aid groups. We are further developing links with local charities and larger organisations so that no donation goes to waste. We organise and take part in community events to raise funds to help with distribution costs. Whilst we welcome free speech, derogatory remarks regarding the issue will be removed as we are here to help and not judge.
