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.

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
