We’re on course to make 300 ponchos!

Poncho sewing

Poncho makingToday is the last of our three sewing sessions this weekend and, thanks to your hard work and support, we are on course to have 300 ponchos ready by Thursday to go with our convoy to Calais on Friday, all funded by a generous grant from the Radley Trust, donations and a discount from Ikea.

The project doesn’t end there, however – we want to continue making ponchos as long as they’re needed by refugees living outdoors in Europe this winter.
So if you have a sewing machine, suggestions for a venue, suggestions on where we could ethically source blankets in bulk, or want to get involved in any other way, we’d love to hear from you – come along today, or email ponchos@camcrag.org.uk
Keep up to date with the project at camcrag.org.uk/poncho-project
