We rely entirely on the generosity of our supporters to provide the aid we send to Calais, and the funds we use to help refugees. We have no employees, no offices, and thus minimal administrative costs, so you can be sure any money you give goes directly to help those in need: In the financial year ending 30 June 2018, we received £31,480 from fundraising and donations, of which £1,021 was spent on organising events and other administration.
Donating clothing, bedding, food and other items
WE ARE PLEASED THAT WE CAN NOW ONCE AGAIN TAKE DONATIONS AT OUR DROP OFF POINTS
Please DO NOT bring donations if you have a dry continuous cough, sore throat, fever or other Covid-19 symptoms, if you are waiting for a Covid-19 test result, or if you have been asked by the NHS to self-isolate.
Please seal all donations in boxes or strong bags at least 48 hours before bringing them to a drop off point, to minimise the risk to those sorting them. Please sanitise your hands before bringing the boxes/bags into the drop off point.
We currently have two drop off locations in Cambridge where you can leave donations, listed below. We also run donation drop off days at various locations in and around Cambridge – see the events page to find out when and where the next one is.
We always require blankets, sleeping bags, phones with chargers, torches, and small and medium MEN’S clothes – especially hats, scarves and other warm clothes.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT DUVETS, LARGE MENS CLOTHING OR ANYTHING ELSE NOT ON THESE LISTS
If you have a large amount of donations (i.e. more than a car boot full), please email email@example.com to arrange a suitable time and place to drop them off.

Any food donations we receive that cannot be used by refugee organisations will be donated to their volunteers or local Cambridge food banks.
Any other donations we receive that cannot be distributed to refugees will be donated to local charities or, in the case of high value items, CamCRAG may sell the items to raise funds for the charity.
