This winter we are volunteering with Linkey, a London charity which helps homeless people and rough sleepers in the capital, and Help Refugees, which works with refugees in Northern France.
Winter is a dangerous time of year. Last year alone, 109 people died on the streets of London. And in Calais and Dunkirk, hundreds of refugees continue to arrive as the situation in many warzones continues to worsen.
With a group of local residents, we are working with Emmaus West Norwood and the Hyderi Mosque in Streatham to collect desperately needed items to distribute in London on 18th November and in Calais on 30 November – 2 December. We would love your help – perhaps you are having a clear out and can donate something, or you could go online and order items from the list new. Equally, if you would like to donate your time then please do get in touch.
