A night of hilarity for a spectacular charity: Help Refugees.
Help Refugees is not simply another aid organisation. It’s a group of everyday people, taking joint action to improve lives of refugees throughout the world. In less than three years, it has become the biggest facilitator of grassroots aid in Europe, with more than 80 projects across the continent and the Middle East.
