Aid Box Community (ABC) is a Bristol-based registered charity dedicated to distributing emergency aid to refugees and asylum seekers in Bristol and across Europe.
We’re a bunch of ordinary people who couldn’t ignore the ever-worsening refugee crisis. We’ve pooled our time, energy, skills and money to help people who are in desperate need and with some great organisers at our helm, we’re getting stuff done!
On 24th April 2017, we were awarded official charity status, under registration number 1172697, enabling us to claim Gift Aid on any applicable donations.
Want to help? Lots of our work is done at the ABC Hub, 5-7 Waverley Road, Redland, Bristol BS6 5ES. Whether you want to come and help sort donations, work in the free shop, put your skills to good use, donate money or supplies, or hold a fundraiser, get in touch and we’ll help make it happen.
