Warm Wishes – 2,500 blankets and 1,000 sleeping bags delivered to the Calais warehouse!

An astonishing 2,500 blankets and nearly 1,000 sleeping bags were just delivered to the Calais warehouse thanks to your incredibly generous Leisure Fayre orders.

We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to carefully select these items knowing that January has been so cold. Our shelves have been nearly empty, with the temperature continuing to drop this delivery means so much. The blankets and sleeping bags will be taken straight to the people who need them most, half will go to our distribution points and new arrivals centres in Calais, and the other half will be taken to Dunkirk.

We are here to help you help – thank you so much for responding.

If you would like to donate items straight to the cause please visit www.leisurefayre.com – all items for Help Refugees have a 20% discount and are delivered free of charge to our warehouse in Calais.


We would not be able to do our work without your support and kindness. Many of the refugees we help are fleeing the conflict zones of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Others are trying to escape political oppression in countries like Eritrea. All are human beings like us. As well as providing immediate physical assistance, we want to help refugees maintain their dignity.

Thank you!
