Registered Charity Number: 1089316

At Real Aid we have a different approach to helping people. We want to support our local community as well as those in need further afield, we want our supporters to be able to see what a difference their time makes, we want our supporters to know that without them we cannot succeed.

Real Aid is different to many other charities, we are a non religious ,non political organisation, we do not receive any Local or National government funding, all our cost are met by our Charity shops, which means we can guarantee that any financial donation will go directly where it is needed most. It will NEVER be used for administration costs.

Real Aid works here in the UK as well as having established projects in Sierra Leone.

 Christmas Boxes 2015

 Real Aid has launched it's Christmas shoebox appeal for 2015 and this year we have decided to offer a choice. We are still collecting shoeboxes for children overseas. These boxes will be need to be delivered into us by the 13th of November as we are delivering them to Romania and Moldova for Christmas. 

Alternatively we are appealing for food boxes to compliment our food bank scheme that benefits low income working families in East Yorkshire. The last date to donate these boxes will be the 4th of December. 

All the details can be found on our promotional poster in the latest news tab on this site.
