Although it’s somewhat fallen out of the news the refugee crisis throughout Europe continues to worsen.  Calais Refugee Aid volunteers are making regular visits to France and Belgium to provide aid and medical assistance to refugees, young and old, men, women and children-many of whom have lost everything.

I am collecting donations to go out to these people.

Things urgently needed include:

Medical  supplies: paracetamol, rehydration sachets, antihistamines, anti-fungal creams/athletes foot treatments, lice treatments, gaviscon type tablets/antacids, dressings etc.

Non-perishable food items: chickpeas, kidney beans, tinned potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, rice, lentils, halal tinned food, pasta, long-life milk, tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt, sugar...

Toiletries and sanitary items (including nappies)

Clothing - clean and in good condition (especially men’s coats/jumpers) and good condition shoes.

Blankets and towels

If you would like to donate, even if is just a simple packet of paracetamol or can of beans, there is a collection box outside 30 Holme Close, Woodborough.

(Alternatively if you would like to help but require collection please contact Anna on 07740307949)
