Before the Covid-19 crisis, we made regular trips to France to distribute donations of tents, coats, toiletries and other necessities to displaced people in Calais and the surrounding area. We hope to resume these trips once the Covid situation improves. However we have still been supporting people in Europe by passing donations on to charities working in Northern France and further afield, and by fundraising for them.
We supported Care4Calais‘ “Coats for Calais” appeal, collecting warm coats to be distributed to displaced people in the Calais area. We also responded to appeals from Care4Calais and Help Refugees for tents for people in Northern France who were facing winter with little protection from the elements.
We also participated in Help Refugees’ national toiletries collection, collecting nappies and toiletries which were then delivered to camps in Greece.
