Volunteering in Calais

One of our Director’s Philip has been volunteering for the past month with the charity Care4Calais – between the middle of May to middle of June he organised 14 volunteers from Colchester to travel to Calais to volunteer.

The volunteers participated in delivering much needed supplies of food,clothes and sleeping bags to refugees in Paris, Brussels and Dunkirk aswell as in Calais. The need for supplies is still just as great – as is the need for volunteers to travel to Calais to help.

The Mosque in Colchester raised money for the refugees in Calais and the Imam travelled to Calais to volunteer and took along donations of new clothes, power banks and headphones

The trip to Calais is always emotional and hard but so worth it, if you want to know more please go to www.care4calais.org
