welcome pack appeal

Our festive welcome pack appeal was so successful that we’ve decided to continue collecting donations this way.

Throughout December and January we gathered hundreds of wonderful welcome packs built by people in and around Glasgow. We were completely delighted and a little overwhelmed by the amazing response we received.


The packs we received were not only full of useful items and beautiful letters, they also sent a strong and heartfelt message to the recipient that Glasgow welcomes and embraces new people. Thank you so much to everyone who got involved.

Due to the success of the campaign we’re going to continue to gather donations in this way. We’d love to continue to receive packs from individuals, workplaces, schools, neighbourhood groups or families. All combinations and contributions welcome!

The poster available through the link here and below should explain everything you need to know – please bear with us on the santa hats, we’ll get updated ones uploaded as soon as possible. You can download it by clicking on the image or link so that you can share it, print it and display it anywhere and everywhere. We’ve also included a download of our ‘essentials list handout’ which will give you details of all the usual items you’ll find in our welcome packs.

You can find details of when and where your welcome packs and donations can be dropped off here. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Hannah@refuweegee.co.uk should you have any questions about donations or drop offs.
