6th/7th February 2016 Trip to Calais/Dunkirk
I am very happy that the man from the Mosque in Gloucester has offered his support and has also offered to drive with me to Calais/Dunkirk. This is a great symbol for humanity- people who were once strangers, coming together, united in a cause for a better world.
Also, I have to say thank you to Raja- a Manager in a Supermarket in Gloucester. He and his friends have donated more than 3500 tins of baked beans to the camp. This will feed so many people in need.
My thank you also goes to so many local women and men who have supported us with donations and money to get things moving.
One man, gave me £100 as a donation.
He said: "That’s 50% of my Winter Fuel allowance...I don't need it as I am not in need."
The other 50%, he gave to another charity.
One woman, told me that she was invited at a friend’s house for a meal.
She told her friends that she is supporting the refugees in Calais.
Her friends teenage son, went to his room and came back with a big bag of winter clothes.
He said: "I have not worn them for ages and I am sure somebody could make good use of them."
Every single donation is received thankfully- no matter how small or how large.
You all have reached my heart and the hearts of those people in need.
Without you, we would not have been able to do what we do!
Here is a list of items that are still urgently needed:
Food, Rice, Cooking Oil, Bread, Bananas
If you like to help and if it is more convenient to you, you also can order via EBay or Amazon and provide our address as the delivery address!
Many thanks and my warm wishes,
