Our November convoy – Tony’s report

Our third Convoy in three months was on the weekend of 12th-14th November when we were asked by Collective Aid, who distribute non-food items in Calais, to lend a hand relocating back to the original l’Auberge warehouse. 

Three people in two cars meant that we had plenty of room for donations, including 219 Ponchos which were very warmly received. Team leader Dominic remarked how good it was to have a large quantity of a warm garment ready and waiting to distribute to everyone in need when temperature gets dangerously low.

This was a weekend memorable for ‘heavy lifting’ – moving boxes racking and hoppers, sorting donations, chopping wood – and aching muscles on Monday morning!
