Bude Refugee Support Group (BRSG) has begun a new appeal for funds to help with the resettlement of Afghan refugees in the South West. Our aim is to raise at least £10,000.

 Please help us by setting up a direct debit or donate straight into the group’s bank account no.43229335, sort code 20-45-45. Alternatively visit our Facebook page – Bude welcomes Refugees, where you can give via Paypal. Please use the reference  Afghan.

BRSG members are all volunteers & we have no overheads so your entire donation will go directly to helping the refugees. For further information call Penny 07951 581330 or Mary 07570 400135.  THANK YOU


We are very proud to announce that Bude Refugee Support Group won  ‘Community Sponsorship Group of the Year 2019’ for our work in being a pioneering group, and being the first group in the UK to sponsor a second family. 

BRSG members continue to support the two refugee families now living here. Bude has proven to be a friendly, warm and hospitable  sanctuary for the families, and we would like to thank all our supporters in Bude, Cornwall, and beyond who have made this Community Sponsorship possible. Bude was the first town in Cornwall to sponsor refugees under the Home Office scheme.
