About the project

We're volunteers from Leamington Spa and Swindon, in association with Kitchen in Calais. We've been inspired by the UK civilians' response to the refugee crisis, which has been so positive with grassroots efforts to provide relief being put into action all over the country. We support the refugees' and their plight for safety and we are against the Governments decision to bomb Syria. As a result we want to show our support in some way, so are raising funds to take to Calais with us in 2016, funding our own way there, with all proceeds going towards buying what is most needed upon arrival (as needs are changing all the time).

As we successfully reached out inital fundraising target of £1000, we have raised this to £2000 and will split the funds between Kitchen in Calais and a charity working on the ground in Greece (to be confirmed).

We leave - Thursday 21st Jan 
We return - Monday 25th Jan

We are aiming to support a community initiative called Kitchen in Calais , where we will volunteer our time towards cooking for and feeding up to 1500 people a day!! All the proceeds you help us raise will fund the kitchen. This could be anything from gas, pots, pans, cleaning products, food and water.

We are taking a van with us to Calais which we would like to fill to the brim with necessities. If you can donate anything from the list (follow the link) please get in touch via our Facebook page or the email below to fill to arrange collections or drop-off.

So our main aims are :
- Help raise as much money before 21st Jan
- Voluntary help or ideas
- Material donations before 21st Jan 

If you can help with any of the above please contact
Tash, Soph or Trudy on the email address:
