Refugee charity Tunbridge Wells is at risk of closure

In a post on its fundraising page, the charity says: “As the cost of living crisis has escalated and new wars and natural disasters occur more regularly, this has understandably led to donor fatigue.

“People have a lot less disposable income, so our charity shop income has also dropped dramatically, which was previously the backbone of our income.”

The charity runs shops in Tunbridge Wells, Maidstone and Uxbridge which sell vintage items to raise money for its cause.

Valentina Osbourn, founder of Refugeease, said: “For the past decade, Refugeease has been my life – awake or asleep. It would be devastating if the charity were to give up.”
