Blankets for refugees

Since 2017 the CamCRAG poncho project has been turning fleece blankets into warm ponchos for distribution amongst refugees in Calais. These have proved invaluable to refugees facing the cold harsh winters in Calais.

“Having visited the warehouse in Calais, we have realised there is a desperate need for blankets for refugees. We are trying to make at least 130 blankets from rolls of fabric, but we don’t quite have enough fabric and we need to raise an extra £250 to buy an extra roll. Please donate if you can!”

Make a donation today and help us to make blankets for refugees in Calais. We hope that the snoods will provide the same invaluable warmth and protection that the ponchos have done in previous years as these were in high demand from the organisations on the ground in Calais.
