Weʼre raising £500 to buy sleeping bags for refugees in Calais and Dunkirk.
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.
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!

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.
