    Weʼve raised £670 to buy sleeping bags for refugees in Calais and Dunkirk.

    Funded on Thursday, 19th December 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I'm doing the North Downs 50KM challenge on 28th September to raise money for warm sleeping bags for refugees before the winter comes. Hundreds of families can be more comfortable with a little help from us. The refugee crisis in northern France still exists despite the news forgetting them.

    I'll be walking 50km over the Surrey Hills in one day, That's 32 miles, a little more than the distance between Calais and Dover. At the end of October we will be taking the sleeping bags over to Care4Calais.

    Each bag costs just £20 and will make a huge difference to someone's comfort and health. You can make that difference!

      I did it!!! Yesterday I walked 54KM - 34 miles.The final quarter was brutal - up the Infamous Box Hill steps. We managed to get to the end before the rain came thankfully, We ran the last few km to get in before dark and the rain. Although I have reached my fundraising target (thank you, thank you, thank you). I'd love it if you can help us with a little more when we go over in a few weeks. We will be doing a shopping trip in Calais, to buy food with any extra money we raise.

      Just one week to go! I'm so excited that I'll be doing this walk to raise money for refugees. They evicted the refugees from Dunkirk this week. So many people, now once again losing the tiny little roots they had put down.

      Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far!!! We are nearly there with our target. Training is going pretty well - I've been walking every weekend. On Friday I did a flat 25 mile walk - a few grumpy joints! I'll be tapering it back now so I'm ready for the full challenge. Calais authorities are making some huge evictions at the moment and so an urgent appeal has gone out for sleeping bags and tents - especially for the families who are being ousted from the gym in Dunkirk.
