Our cupboards are bare!


Every month we run a Free Shop at Boaz for our clients who have had their asylum applications refused and who are not allowed to claim benefits or work.

The Free Shop is managed by Lisa, and her team of trusty volunteers who do a great job of getting everything set up and ready for everyone- right down to the refreshments (amazing cakes!) for people while they are waiting.

We’re dependent on donations to make our Free Shop happen each month and following last week’s busy Free Shop, our store cupboards are starting to look bare!

We currently need the following items:

  • Sanitary towels
  • Men’s shampoo
  • Men’s shower gel
  • Women’s shampoo
  • Shaving foam
  • Basmati rice
  • Tuna in sunflower oil
  • Tinned sweetcorn / vegetables
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Hot chocolate

If you can help with any of these items, please email Lisa on info@boaztrust.org.uk – she’d love to hear from you!

If you’re not able to donate groceries, we’re always incredibly grateful for financial donations for our Free Shop. We’ve set up a special page here where you can give to our Free Shop Fund. We’ll make sure the money is used specifically for the provision of food (usually fresh fruit and vegetables as well as other essentials to make sure there’s enough for everyone).

Thanks for reading!
