Following the success of last year’s children’s Christmas Party at Brigstock House, FreeArt is organising another collection and is desperate for donations of toiletries for refugee residents.

Last year saw such a fantastic amount of presents donated to Brigstock House that organisers were able share gifts with the other two refugee houses in South Croydon and East Dulwich. 

Presents donated this year have included nearly new toys, art and craft sets. Organisers are still keen to get more much needed toiletries and socks and underwear for all genders and ages.

Van Dang who organises the collection with the help of Mitra Djalili, Averil Coutinho and Chetna Kapacee have now wrapped many of the presents.

If you have any questions, want to donate toiletries, face paint, sing and dance on the party day or get involved in any way big or small, please email:
