They would be very grateful for donations of pots and pans, sets of crockery etc that are in good condition.
Adele Owen, GARAS Director, said, “We have found that asylum seekers are having to share properties with a very minimal provision of kitchen equipment – only 3 pots and pans per house even if that is shared with 5 -7 people. There are no chopping boards or kitchen knives.”
Any donations of electrical equipment such as kettles or toasters would need to be new to ensure safety.
Donations can dropped at GARAS, Trust Centre, Falkner Street, Gloucester, GL1 4SQ on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9am and 5pm.
