Diane Abbott Supports #Coats4Calais
Today we are delighted to have the Rt Hon Diane Abbott MP supporting our #Coats4Calais campaign by donating this warm coat to a refugee who is currently freezing in Northern France. Its great to see Diane continuing to support the many refugees still stranded in France; she has previously visited them in both Calais and Paris, and still remembers them now. We hope to see the day when she can, as promised, end the UK’s ‘hostile environment’ policy that has been in place for so long.
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. Our goal is to provide each and every one of these refugees with a warm winter coat, but 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 – www.care4calais.org/thedropoffmap/
