REfUSE and Handcrafted want to provide vital food supplies to those at risk during isolation, at a time when our income has vastly reduced.

REfUSE and Handcrafted are lifelines to those that make up their communities, providing vital food and support. At a time when the cafe and workshops are shut and we're not able to make physical contact this will be more important than ever. Particularly for those with already poor mental health and those suffering job losses and hardship.


We want to keep doing this in the best way we can by providing food parcels, cooked meals and phone calls to the most at risk individuals and families though our networks at Handcrafted, REfUSE, The People's Pantry and King's Church Achor.

Between us we'll be delivering at least 55 cooked meals each day, 60 grocery bags each week, and weekly phone calls and contact for over 100 people.

However, with the cafe closed and all events cancelled, our usual income has vanished. By giving a small amount to cover food parcels, deliveries and our usual collection costs, you'll be helping us to deliver food and support to those who'll really need it.

Let's make 'REfUSE and Handcrafted COVID-19 Fundraising' happen
