Help me stay volunteering in Calais

Project by Evie Oldfield
Help me stay volunteering in Calais

I would love to raise enough funds to allow me to stay in Calais and volunteer with Refugee Community Kitchen and SBP until June this year.

We did it!

On 21st Apr 2018 we successfully raised £420 of £300 target with 20 supporters in 56 days

I have been volunteering in Calais with Refugee Community Kitchen and the School Bus Project since January 2018. RCK make 2500 meals a day for displaced people living rough in Calais and Dunkirk. The SPB provides a safe space, language exchange, music, games and internet access twice a day every day. 

The situation is very much still in crisis. The number of refugees arriving is going up whilst the number of volunteers is going down. The media has lost interest in the situation here, but that doesn't mean that young men, women and children aren't sleeping outside in minus temperatures.

To enable me to stay for longer I'd like to raise £300 to cover my small living costs from now until June. Any excess funds will be donated to RCK/SBP.

If you want to come over and volunteer yourself or have any more questions, just send me an email on

Thank you so much for your support x

I have written a blog about my experiences here for those interested -
