CHRISTMAS – Give a Gift that really helps someone. Set up a monthly payment for a year.
Even £1 a month is a real help. 

Donations by bank transfer or standing order:

Account Name: Launceston Refugee Support Group
Account Number: 24335460
Account Sort Code: 30 94 91

Or send a cheque – details at bottom of the page.


Our aims are:

  • to build local networks, and to contribute to the work being done here in Cornwall to collect, sort and dispatch useful items to stranded refugees
  • to work towards welcoming 2 syrian familes to Launceston as part of the government’s pledge to resettle some of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees in the UK.

We need to raise money both to support the continuing direct aid distribution efforts and also about £15,000 in advance before we can welcome each family.

The most effective and cheapest way to donate is via direct bank transfer using your online banking either for a single donation, or to set up a regular standing order.

To do this use the following details:

Account Name: Launceston Refugee Support Group
Account Number: 24335460
Account Sort Code: 30 94 91

(don’t worry if the name is too long for your bank’s form and gets truncated; so long as you have the account number and sort code correct we will get the money).

If you do make a direct donation in this way it would be most helpful if you could drop an email to treasurer@lrsg.org.uk so that we know where the money has come from (your details will be kept confidential to the Treasurer unless you say otherwise)

We will be running specific Crowdfunder appeals to raise money for particular projects or elements of our overall goal, but as with all card-based donation systems a small cost is incurred in card processing (about 2%).

Once we have charitable status sorted we will be eligible for Gift Aid and we will send out amended instructions.

If you prefer to post a cheque then please make it payable to Launceston Refugee Support Group and send it to:
