“If my family were bombed and had lost everything, I’d like to think that someone, somewhere in the world would help them, if I couldn’t”
-Sarah, mother and volunteer, Leeds
Over 3,000 refugees are currently sleeping rough in Northern France, and temperatures are rapidly dropping. Some as young as 13, with no access to clean clothes, water or shelter. So this holiday season our goal is to provide each and every one of these refugees with a warm winter coat. To do this we URGENTLY need your help.
We are asking everyone to look in your cupboards for a winter coat that you no longer wear.
- Take a picture of yourself holding up this coat and post it on social media with a message such as:
“Show you @Care4Calais by donating a coat to a refugee this winter #Coats4Calais”
- Donate your coat at your nearest drop off point – see here
- If you don’t have a coat to donate you can buy a coat to keep a refugee warm all winter for just £25 here
Let’s keep people warm this winter!
How can you help?
Please help us now by making a donation. Without you we could not do all we do. You can make a difference now.
We are always in need of dedicated volunteers who want to help make a difference with their hands and hearts.
