Coats4Calais: Help us keep refugees warm this winter
Winter is upon us and this year we need your help more than ever before.
As well as helping people sleeping rough in freezing temperatures across Northern France and Belgium, we are now also supporting newly arrived refugees in Home Office accommodation across the UK.
In Northern France more than 3,000 refugees are currently sleeping rough. Temperatures are rapidly dropping and police raids and evictions are worse than ever.
In the UK there are over 3,500 people stuck in limbo at hotels, hostels and military barracks. They arrive in just the clothes they are wearing, so they can’t take these off to wash them. They are poorly equipped for a British winter and many have no coat at all.
So this winter 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. Here’s what you can do:
- Donate a coat you no longer wear to your nearest drop-off point: care4calais.org/thedropoffmap
- Give £20 to help buy a refugee a new coat: care4calais.org/donate

Let’s keep people warm this winter!
