The situation in Calais has become increasingly worse for the refugees stranded there. Their tents and personal possessions are routinely destroyed by the police so they are currently living rough often with no shelter from the elements.
The work the charities do on the ground is irreplaceable and cannot be underestimated. If they didn't cook or distribute food and vital supplies daily to the refugees, they would be left hungry and homeless without access to basic sanitation.
Take this opportunity to show you care. By offering a hand with cooking and sorting through or distributing supplies, you will be making a family or an individual feel a little less vulnerable and a little more optimistic. We believe kindness is a choice and when the world has been unkind, we must choose to be kind.

when & where
The convoy departs from Shenfield Station small Car Park in Brentwood, Essex on Friday at 10am sharp. You can reach Shenfield easily, only a 23 min train from London Liverpool St. Please allow enough time for any travel disruptions and ensure you're set to arrive at the meet-up point with plenty of time to spare as we cannot wait for late-comers as we have pre-paid ferries to catch.
If you live far away, you might need to stay locally or in London the night before to ensure you arrive on time. We help with parking cars that aren't travelling.
And we will arrive back in the UK on Sunday evening in time for work on Monday.
