What is CRAG

CRAG is a group of local people in and around Charlbury (Oxfordshire) who organise events to raise funds for the benefit of refugees, mainly those in France and Greece.  

We also raise awareness about the difficulties faced by asylum seekers and refugees in this country and abroad and regularly organise collections of clothes, bedding, hygiene supplies and other desperately needed items.

Through our Ukraine Welcome Hub we also support hosts and Ukrainian guests in the local area. 

Since 2015 we have donated over
