What is crowdfunding?
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.Read more
As a group of volunteers we have travelled several times to deliver much needed supplies to the thousands of refugees stranded at the Jungle refugee camps in Calais.
On our previous trips we crowd fundraised to fill several vans full of food, winter clothing, tents, sleeping bags etc.
As Christmas approaches and we all think about buying gifts and presents for our own family and friends, we feel that we ought to spare a thought for the more than 400 plus children living amongst the desperation in the camps.
Our aim is, with your kind support to once again crowdfund and put together as many £10 packages as possible containing Christmas gifts, food and toys etc.
Rather than spend Christmas at home, we intend to reach the refugee camps well before Christmas eve and give out presents to the children to bring much needed smiles to their innocent faces.
We will be driving our own vans as we have done previously. All the team members are as always volunteers and will be themselves donating time money and effort.
100% of donations will be used to buy Xmas gifts for children.
Please consider making a donation and ecourage family and friends to donate what they can towards this cause during this festive season.
Also please feel free to come along as volunteers if you can drive and can spare a week.
