Please donate if you can, and share widely
We are making weekly cash payments to around 50 asylum seekers and other migrants with *no* source of income, to enable them to buy food, fuel and phone credit during the Covid 19 emergency.
In a pandemic, we can clearly see that the wellbeing of each of us is important for the health of all of us.
Please help us to make Brighton & Hove a community where nobody is left out in the cold.
Refugees are welcome in Brighton. It takes all sorts to make a great city. We are proud of our diversity.
But some of our neighbours need more than warm words. Without access to benefits, work or family support, homeless refugees and migrants in Brighton are relying on all of us to lend a hand.
If enough of us chip in the price of a cup of coffee (or two) each month, we can easily afford to help.
Donate by text
Text HUMAN to 70085 to donate £5 a month. If you want to donate a different amount (£1 to £20), just add the number (eg HUMAN7 to donate £7).
This will cost you the amount of your donation each month, plus (to set it up) your mobile operator's standard charge for two texts - after sending the initial text, you will need to reply YES to agree to the recurring donation.
The donation will be added to your phone bill every month. You can opt out at any time by sending a text. (If your mobile phone operator doesn't support shortcodes, this donation method won't work for you - sorry.)
You'll get a text asking you to agree to Gift Aid - if you're a UK taxpayer, please do follow the link and fill in your details, as we can reclaim 25% of your donations from the government if you do.
Donate by standing order
If you set up a standing order, we do not have to pay any fees to a 3rd party.
Setting up a standing order is really easy. You need to tell your bank to pay your chosen amount monthly into our bank account.
Our details are as follows:
Bank Name: The Co-operative Bank
Account Name: Thousand 4 1000
Sort Code: 08-92-99
Account number: 65835171
If you donate by standing order, we have no way of knowing that you’re supporting the project. It’s really useful to us to know how many people signed up, who you are and how much you are donating. So… could you please fill in this form - you can also use this to agree that we can claim Gift Aid on your donations. We won’t share your details with anybody.
