Become a friend of NDRC

A regular donation will ensure that we can continue to run our advice, cafe, classes and activities on a continuous basis.

This will allow us to continue to support our visitors in becoming independent and active members of the community.

  • £15 will enable 5 visitors to attend one ESOL class each month

  • £25 will pay for one visitor to attend an Advice session each month

  • £50 would buy groceries for for one week per month a year


  • £100 would reimburse the travel costs of 26 visitors and 4 volunteers for one day at the Drop-In café per month.

Material donations

Clothing donations
  • We operate a clothing store for our visitors in which everything is free. This is stocked entirely by donations. If you have clean, good quality clothes, please contact us to arrange a drop-off.

    • NOTE: We are in particular need of warm coats and jackets, winter shoes, and scarfs.

Toiletries donations
  • In addition to clothing, we also offer our visitors free toiletries and sanitary products. If you are able to donate new, unopened toiletries (e.g. shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, deodorant, razors, shaving cream) or sanitary products (particularly sanitary pads), please contact us to arrange a drop-off.

Food donations *
  • On drop-in days, we offer our visitors a free breakfast and hot lunch. Almost all of the food we provide is kindly donated by other organisations. If you are a restaurant, food store or catering company which sometimes has food to spare, please contact us to discuss how we might be able to collect and use any donations.
