Calais Needs: URGENT appeal – warehouse shelves are bare

As explained by long-term volunteer, Mel, stocks in our warehouse are critically low once again. We have completely run out of many core items. With at least 30 new arrivals coming every day we need plenty of small and medium men’s joggers, t-shirts and hoodies as well as thick blankets, sleeping bags, roll mats and tents.

In the Calais camp the stock from our warehouse provides all aid for:

  • The new arrivals caravan (daily)
  • 4 distribution points (daily, on a rota)
  • Women and Children’s distribution (daily and weekly)
  • Youth distribution (weekly)
  • Mobile distribution (daily)
  • Vulnerabilities distribution (daily)

To continue to do this in a consistent, dignified way we need your help.

Why not hold a little collection amongst colleagues, friends and family and drive donations out over the next couple of weeks? Please ensure that you ask people to only donate items on the list here:

HOW TO ORGANISE GOODS

Try to concentrate on one or two items as a large amount of one item is much quicker and easier to distribute than a mixed load of many items.

It is very important that goods are clean, pre-sorted and clearly labelled e.g. a box of walking boots size 44, a bag of men’s jeans size 32, or pre-packaged food parcels.

If you want to be a real star then the best box sizes are 60 x 40 x 32.5 or 90 x 60 x 48
