Refugee Week 2024

Refugee Week (17th-21st June) is a chance for us to come together to celebrate the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary.   

Will you join the celebration by hosting a fundraiser this June? Set up your JustGiving page now.  

We’ve got a few ideas of ‘simple acts’ to get you started below, but you can fundraise in whatever way works for you. However you decide to support this June, your radical act of kindness will make a real difference to refugees and people seeking safety here.  

Share a meal

Host a dinner party with friends, family, co-workers or your community. Set the date, invite your guests and whip up a feast! This could be a chance to share a meal from your own culture, try out something new or even a potluck where everyone brings a dish to share. Collect donations via your JustGiving page as a thank you for your hospitality, and get in touch for Refugee Action merch that we can send your way to make your feast extra special. 

Get active

Set yourself a goal this June, and ask for sponsors to help keep you on track! This could be covering a certain number of miles throughout the month, keeping to a steps target, or going for a run in fancy dress. We love to see your creative ideas, so have a think about what your talents are, or try out something completely new! We've even had superstar fundraisers take on 5k a day in fancy dress, pogo stick challenges and kayaking, so don't be afraid to think outside of the box!

Host a movie night.

Take a look at the film recommendations below, kindly pulled together by the team at Refugee Week. Choose a date and venue, invite your friends and ask for a donation to your fundraising page to ‘pay’ for a ticket.
