We have had a huge response to recent calls for donations of food and other items and we would like to thank everyone who has given so much.
The current needs on the ground in Calais, Paris and Dunkirk are below. All aid preferably needs to be size and item sorted and labeled
Our friends at the Daily Bread Cooperative in Kings Hedges are continuing to take donations of food and clothes off for us. If you want to make a donation of food or other essential items please see the list below. If you have a large amount please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a drop off.
