We are planning to take donations to Calais during the week commencing the 15th of February and would like to appeal for the following items:

  • Tents / tarpaulins
  • Thick blankets / sleeping bags / camping mats
  • Wellies
  • Waterproofs (jackets and trousers – sizes: small / medium)
  • Jackets (sizes: small / medium)
  • Toiletries (soap, deodorant, baby wipes, shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, shaving cream, tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toilet roll, razors and sanitary towels)
  • Rucksacks
  • Socks / belts / woolly hats
  • Certain men’s / women / children’s clothes and shoes – further information on specific requirements can be found here
  • Certain food items – further information on specific requirements can be found here

Please only bring items from this list as other items cannot currently be accepted by teams in Calais / Dunkirk. Further information on items required at present can be found here.

If you would like to donate, we would really appreciate it if you can spare the time to clean any items before donating. All your time and generosity is greatly appreciated.
