Help Refugees in Calais

1445326852_calais.rory.1..jpgA group of local Labour Party members are travelling to Calais in a couple of weeks to work with the organisation ‘Help Refugees’. They are taking a van and with your help are hoping to fill it with items that are urgently needed.

Since the Calais ‘Jungle’ was demolished and the Dunkirk camp burnt down, almost a thousand refugees have ended up sleeping rough in the local area, including at least 200 unaccompanied children in need of essential supplies, protection and support. The number is growing, but with press attention focussed elsewhere, donated supplies are dwindling. Your support will make a real difference.
Urgently needed items:
  • Trainers (sizes 40-43)
  • Socks (sizes 40-43)
  • Mens Underwear (Boxers, only new please – Small and Medium)
  • Blankets and sleeping bags
  • Jogging bottoms and jeans (sizes small and medium – 28 and 30 inch waist)
  • Emergency foil blankets

The full list, including men's clothes and hygiene items, mobile phones and food, is available on the 'Help Refugees' websiteOnly items listed on the website can be accepted

Drop-offs can be made to:
Bath Labour Party, 136a Walcot Street, Bath BA1 5BG
Any weekday from now until Friday 14th July, 10:30 am to 1:00 pm.
Phone first to check the office is open: 01225 314131.
