Clothing Project

Hope4, through its team of volunteers and supporters, is undertaking a clothing project to support asylum seekers, from a variety of countries, who are temporarily housed in Rugby.

The plight of someone seeking asylum is not simple. Many will have taken the very difficult decision to flee their homes, often leaving families behind. Sometimes they arrive with only very basic items and are in need of additional, seasonally appropriate clothing. This is where you can help.

Can you help?

Do you have a some items of clothing from the list below that you are able to donate?

What are we looking for?

This list will be updated on a weekly basis on this website and our social channels. 

This is in response to needs identified by the clients, so please check back from time to time. Donated items need to be wearable/usable and clean. We do not have the capacity to launder clothing prior to issuing them to clients. 

Our list of needed items are shown as high priority, medium priority and low priority – it’s important that only the items shown are donated, as our storage space is limited and these are the items that we can issue immediately to clients.

The list below was last updated 5th January 2022.
