London2Calais’ Key Aims:

  1. Assisting those in the Camp by bringing donations and solidarity: helping through food aid, through projects such as a generator for the school or a pump to remove stagnant water from the jungle area, by supporting Secours Catholique with clothing delivery days.
  2. Helping build a refugee solidarity movement in the UK by helping at demonstrations, organising summits, fighting racism in the UK, issuing statements and raising awareness about difficulties refugees face.
  3. Helping refugees claim asylum through existing legal frameworks by supporting law firms defending asylum claims.

Partners in Calais

We work with Secours Catholique and L’Auberge des Migrants.

  1. Hi there,

    I’m keen to get involved; happy to give time/help organise, whatever you need really. Live in Crystal Palace but happy to travel wherever. Let me know if you’d like my number. Can’t sit by any more, while all these people are suffering…

    • Hi Matt, thank you for your concern and support. The most useful thing volunteers can do at the moment is fundraise for us: our Indiegogo page is here: indiegogo.com/at/London2Calais. We have officially hit our target but we’re still very happy to take further donations to ensure that we can buy as much food and as many supplies for the refugees as possible. This is really valuable at this stage, since we have enough cars and drivers for the next convoy. If you can get to Calais for a rally on 19th September however, this would also be a really wonderful thing to show your solidarity with the refugees.

    • Hi Jessica,
      Thank you so much for your support and your offers of help. We are overwhelmed by the number of responses we have received over the last few days! We are not taking small donations of food and soon will no longer be dealing with clothing – but please see the organisation CalAid, who distribute clothes at the camp, for more information on how to donate clothes directly.

  3. Hi!
    Sorry if this isn’t the most appropriate place to put this…
    I’d like to make a weekend trip out to see conditions for myself (due to political pressure and different reports), take photos, let other people know. However, I don’t want to go over alone. I live in the Midlands – would it be possible for me to go over with your group if I make my way down to London / Dover?
    Sorry and thank you!

    Many Thanks

  5. Hello

    As you haven’t given any additional details on the email can you please get back to me as I need to know ASAP. I wanted to also know if you need us to bring anything with us?
