    Story

    We've just got back from our first supply visit with coats, blankets, flooring & furniture to the refugee camp in Calais known as the Jungle. We're deeply moved by the desperate situation of the gentle, dignified people we met. We'll return with supplies on September 17th. We've already booked and will fund travel expenses ourselves. To be able to take specific supplies which we discovered are most needed, we're appealing for financial contributions as we'll struggle to bear the cost ourselves.

      A huge thank you to everyone who has put into this. We are going to be able to do so much with this. I have just got off the phone to Clement Blaine who has researched the best tents for the winter and we will be supporting his project. Please keep giving up to the end! _()_

      Hope we make it to £56,000 before the end of the day. Our site will wind up in 10 hours - so if you can please do give. We are incredibly happy that we will be able to make a change in the Jungle. We have already secured much needed storage there and are building a network! _()_

    We are a couple living in Kent. We decided to go to Calais whilst watching footage of the Jungle on the internet. Standing in the Jungle we vowed to keep coming as long as the crisis lasted. Now we need a collective effort to support the refugees in Calais and the rest of Europe.
