Collecting & delivering aid, please read carefully:
All aid will be delivered to the established aid agencies warehouses in Calais or our own temporary 'pop up depot' in Calais.
It's absolutely crucial that no aid is distributed in the camps directly by anyone on the convoy.
This is to make sure aid is distributed fairly without causing any argument or disagreement amongst those in the camps. This is why we are opening up drop off points across the country - please deliver aid to these in advance of the convoy so we can load aid onto the lorry which is leading the convoy. This will avoid delays in unloading in Calais.
We will need all the donations we can possibly get, please look at the DONATIONS LIST HERE and only donate items listed.
KEEP CHECKING BACK AS MORE DROP OFF POINTS COME IN AND EMAIL NEW ONES INTO email@example.com
Drop Off Points are now open.
