So proud of you Andrew and Hannah and would love to come with you to Calais if I am able. Please let me know the dates and how else I can help. Love Gill Weeks

Thank you for being proactive in your demonstration of compassion, treating fellow human beings with dignity and care, and so bringing comfort, strength and hope. I stand with you in solidarity and support all that you are ding.

Food, water, clothing and shelter (the basic needs of life) are the things I take for granted every day. I can't help everyone, but I can help someone and I hope my donation goes some way to providing these things for someone in need.

I'm so glad I found your page....I think what you are doing is brilliant. I'd also like to offer my help to you....either by driving to Calais or collecting some items locally. I don't feel quite brave enough to go it alone!

I am full of admiration for you both - it's horrific to think what is happening on our doorstep whilst we sit back comfortably in our homes. Please contact me if you need any help loading up your car - I may be able to help with transport as well Best wishes Mary Ann

Thank you so much for picking up the baton on our behalf and supporting the refugees. If you need any hands on help in the coming months, please contact me and I will do what I can. Kind regards Hazel

Well done for doing something positive at a time of criticism and cynicism! We would love to have donated more at this time but one of us is on DLA and the other is a student teacher. We could bring a box of items to a collection point in the Oxford/Witney area if you could tell us where that place is please. Good luck with your campaign! Regards, Tony & Rebecca XX
