50ps For Refugees


We have been overwhelmed by the number of people pledging to donate their commemorative Brexit 50p coins to us.

Three million commemorative coins entered circulation on Friday 31st January and we would love to receive any as donations.

We are proud to have spent 25 years working to make Berkshire a place of peace, prosperity, and friendship for all Refugees.

Please donate your 50ps For Refugees so that we can continue our work for another 25 years.
