Please ensure that clothes and shoes are clean and fit for use. Please tie shoes in pairs where possible too, to aid us when sorting.

If you are donating a tent, please ensure that all parts (poles, flysheet,

shed or garage for a few years, please do take five minutes to check its
condition and that the mice haven't eaten it. Thanks!

Lastly, if you have any spare Euros (coins/small notes) sitting around and
feel like donating them, we will give them to our driver(s) who can buy
any extra items (or fuel) in Calais, or donate to the Distribution Centre.

Thanks, Brian Latham
