£1,098raised of £1,300 target by 36 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,098 to buy light weight blankets for refugees sleeping rough in Calais.

    London, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 16th October 2017

    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 charity.

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


    There are an estimated 750 refugees sleeping rough in Calais without access to clean water, food or shelter. It is more difficult than ever for volunteers to distribute aid.

    Every week there are reports of the CRS taking bedding from refugees and its starting to get cold.

    This is a crowd funding project answering the shout out for blankets from the Help Refugees warehouse in Calais.

    All the money donated will be used to buy these lightweight blankets that I'll take over to Calais as soon as possible, where distribution will be organised by the volunteers there.

    An immeasurable thank you to Help Refugees for all their tireless work and up to date information of how we can all help. Without government support we are the ones helping.

    Please see for any further information.

    Thank you.

      We have raised so much in a month! Thanks to the generosity of your hard working selves I'm now waiting on the delivery of 600 blankets for refugees sleeping rough in Calais, I've booked myself a ferry and we're good to go next week. This has been a really satisfying project to put together, your support has been impressive and uplifting. Nice work everyone xxx
