Please see below the items for which I will arrange collection for delivery to Calais. The latest date for donations is Sunday 27th September. These are the items they are requesting at the Charity Distribution Centre we are in contact with.
Trainers, hiking boots, wellies, (only sizes UK 7-9 or EU 41-43.
Jackets (sizes S & M only); tracksuit trousers, jeans (waist 28-32 only), belts, socks and pants, wooly hats.
Candles or othr lighting kit, tents (covers and tarpaulins), sleeping bags, blankets, pots and pans, plastic bags (to keep things dry), soap and shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste.
Not currently required
Women's or children's clothes or shoes (90% of Calais refugees at present are men). Jumpers/sweaters, nappies and baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, sheets, pillows, suits, formal shoes.
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,
ropes, pegs, etc) are in the bag before delivering. If it has been in the
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
