New stretch target

If we get more than our target we'll be able to provide even more presents to refugees and people seeking asylum in our community! Please keep donating and sharing our Appeal.

If we do end up with extra funds once all presents have been purchased, these will be allocated to our general fund to enable us to continue offering our services like immigration advice, sports, arts and more.


This year, you can give the gift of support and kindness to people seeking asylum and their families in Calderdale. 

Times of crisis always affect the most vulnerable people in society the hardest - including our Centre Members.

Your kind donations will help us purchase Christmas gifts which we will distribute to our Centre members and their children - many of which will be isolated and alone this Christmas. These gifts bring so much joy, celebration and a sense of community to those that need it most.

Last year we were able to distribute 333 gifts to adults and 250 gifts to children. Help us reach even more families this year!

By donating to the St. Augustine's Centre 2021 Christmas Appeal, you can receive a beautiful, printable Certificate of Donation via email (perfect for putting into a Christmas card for a loved one!) confirming what your donation could cover.

How your donations will be used:

All donations received through the Christmas Appeal will go to St. Augustine's Centre to purchase age-appropriate gifts. The specified gift on your voucher is illustrative in purpose, your donation may be used to provide a needed gift other than that listed on your voucher depending on the precise needs of our centre members. 

Other ways to help:

You can also purchase gifts and bring directly to our Centre. We are looking for gifts across all age ranges, including hats and gloves, toys, nice toiletries and pyjamas. Please contact us for more information:  [email protected]
