We wanted to say an ENORMOUS THANK YOU to The Calais Woodyard team, who have worked for over a year to keep refugees in Northern France warm and fed, enabling them to maintain a level of autonomy and dignity.

The team have now left, have passed on their knowledge to another group in Dunkirk, and having prepared 3 months’ worth of firewood in advance.

For all your time spent at the chop saw tables and on the yellow wood truck, in the sun, cold, or rain… THANK YOU!
