The Refugee Mens' Pantalonathon- Can You Help Pay for A Ticket for A Second Car?
Thank you to everyone who has been in touch so far to offer to help with donations for the refugees in Calais. Brilliantly, we have now received enough donations to require at least two vehicles to go to Calais and so I am appealing for donations of money to cover the cost of the transport of these items. You can donate men's clothes pr money for this onMonday 29th August at 23 Orford Road between 2-4pm.
A reminder too, that The Refugee Kitchen volunteers in Walthamstow are also seeking to take 2000 flapjacks to Calais for refugees in the next week as well. They are asking for donations of such bakes with no nuts, cut small, packed with clingfilm or foil between layers and in Tupperware or a clingfilmed box or shoe box. These can be delivered to the Italian Deli on Hoe Street, The Hornbeam Centre at the Bakers Arms or Debbie Bliss's shop on Orford Road 27/28/29/30 August with the cut off 5pm on the 30th to make the Calais visit.
Finally, you can also help the Side by Side Caravan project which is renovating caravans for refugees to live in and kitting them out by buying items for these caravans from Amazon. The link to be able to do this is here.
