Raised by 1,652 people in 12 months
We are collecting supplies to bring to migrants stranded in Calais and living in tents. What these people have been through to get to Calais is unbelievable, they are heros and deserve our support. We are raising money to help transport collected supplies to Calais and to purchase camping equipment and food also.

Hi all,

I've been promising an update for ages so here it is. I've been busy having a baby, he was born back in January and is keeping me very busy but the good work of the convoy has been continuing.

I've attached the original financial report in case anyone has not seen that. It explains where the bulk of that money raised went. After the convoy the donations kept coming and we kept sending more trucks with aid out around Europe and even as far as Syria.

As well as that we have been funding various projects like the library and radio station in Calais. We have also funded a group of Irish nurses and doctors who have been out to Greece and to Calais. And in fact I am handing this GoFundMe page over to the group of Irish nurses who are continuing to travel to Calais to give medical aid. As always we are not funding people's travel or accommodation, anything you donate on this page will so straight to purchasing medical equipment and supplies.

The next update you get will be from Elena on behalf of the Irish medical group.

Thank you all very much for your incredibly generous donations.
Tracey

You need to organize more drop off sites. I am going over to help in the medical end in October and lots of people are very willing to donate, but don't know where to go. It's a lost chance. Mayble volunteers could collect in different areas and then others could volunteer to transport the goods to a central location... just a thought

Hi Robin, thank you very much for the generous donation. We are collecting at the Marina Commercial Park in Cork city. If u need directions call 086 77771078. We were hoping to concentrate on catering equipment, shoes and sanitary items as these seem to be most needed. We were then going to unload at Calais and use raised money to stock up at a supermarket with food and water. This way we get a second load out of our vans. But saying that we will accept some warm clothes and blankets too. If you have advice on what to bring please do get in touch.
