Hi there everyone!!

Firstly, thank you so much to everyone that has shown support already – it’s amazing to see how much everyone cares.

To everyone who does not know us, or what we’re doing: We just want to give them a break. We want to show them human solidarity and compassion.

You can help us. 

We are going to be taking supplies…(every day items we all use) down to Calais. You can help us in two ways:

  1. Please make a donation if you can - to help us get there and buy supplies. Any amount great or small is totally valuable to us, because every item we can take with us will make a difference to somebody. The money will cover the actual drop, medical supplies and toiletries.
  1. We will also be collecting donations from you guys of clothing and other necessary daily use items. We'll set up drop off days in London in the next few weeks for you to bring items if that's how you would like to help. Message us through this site or and we'll keep you posted.

We are planning on going to Calais in October. The items you can really help us with are:

  • Mens shoes/boots
  • Candles and matches
  • Torches
  • Socks
  • Jackets
  • Tents
  • Tracksuit bottoms
  • Jeans
  • Blankets
  • Sleeping Bags and covers
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Pants
  • Pots and Pans

We will keep you all updated with our plans with how we’re getting on, on our Facebook Group  and on Twitter. But in the mean time – thank you again.

Peace xx

The journey, and all of that suffering was to reach a country that respects human rights where we could live peacefully”
