Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group (charity number 1170180) send regular convoys of volunteers and aid from the Cambridge region to help refugees in Northern France. We hold fundraisers and organise donation drop off days, as well raise awareness of the refugee situation in Europe. All the money we raise goes towards providing aid or supporting our convoys: We have no employees, and are entirely run by volunteers.
As a charity we have a board of trustees to provide oversight, which appoints an executive committee to handle everyday management and decision making.
Our members help direct the charity and vote for the trustees at the Annual General Meeting, last held in September 2017 – you can read our annual report here.
We have several subgroups which run different parts of the charity:
- Donations: Drop off days and other donation collections
- Convoys: Organises and runs regular convoys to Help Refugees’ warehouse in Calais
- Fundraising: Holds fundraising events and campaigns
- Volunteers: Recruitment and management of volunteers
- Members: Members liaison and events
- Communications: Website and social media, press, mailing list newsletter
