    Story

    Thousands of refugees are living in appalling conditions in the camp in Calais.
    Like you, I am incredibly lucky that, by accident of birth, I live in a peaceful and stable part of the world. I have skills that will be of use at the camp and want to make a contribution to help others in a time of need.

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you all for your donations. I took 20 rolls of insulation, screws and tools for use on the shelters I helped to construct. The picture shows the temporary workshop in an old warehouse producing basic flat-pack shelters to be built in the Jungle. It was great to be able to help out, but harrowing to see the appalling conditions that the camp residents have to put up with. There is little "official" aid in the camp (MSF is an exception), so the burden falls to individuals and small groups to help however they can. Winter brings cold and bad weather, and things are grim. I am returning to Calais in early December with my partner Ceri. You have already been so generous, but I am fundraising again. Please pass this on and do what you can to help me raise more funds. I am doing it direct this time, so please e-mail me for details: dave.simcox@mac.com. Messages of support also welcome!

      Over £1,000 in two weeks! A huge thank you to all pledgers. Keep it coming please - I've set a new target of £1,500. Share this around. I'll be posting updates while I am in Calais and (hopefully) bringing some truth back. Watch this space...
