ARCHIVE: CARAVANS FOR CALAIS



Follow Us on Facebook







What is our aim? To send as many caravans as possible in a comfortable time limit to French coast refugee camps to ease the issue of winter approaching.

How do we decide who gets a caravan?  

We work closely with on camp coordinators to ensure that caravans are used where needed. The initial test stage was supported by Liz Gall and Ifty Patel so that they could implement volunteer and medic vans. Since then - offices, volunteer information centres, and accommodation has been sent.

The caravans are ready to go and a step up from a tent as they will be  out of the mud and easy to move if the weather waterlogs the pitch. They have everything necessary to keep upto  3 people comfortable: beds, gas cooker (gas is readily available on camp), a shower or sink, a toilet area or fitted toilet, heating and storage.

Of course some people may prefer a tent.

We are happy for anyone at all to fundraise on our behalf.

All payment options are here. We don’t incur any charges for bank transfers.
