Message from local member Andy Brown of Care4Calais:
A group of volunteers went from Newham and Redbridge to work at Care4Calais last week. Attached please find a diary of our week, to let you know how things are and to show the wide range of activities in a typical Care4Calais week.
This time, thanks to your support, we were able to take £500 worth of new jackets (reversible fleeces and waterproofs). We also took 400 euros, which was used to supply material in the warehouse and fuel for the vehicles for the whole week. Thanks to all who donated goods or money, bought T shirts and badges etc. A particular shout out this time to local members of the Society of the Sacred Heart, who have arranged for a separate £1000 donation to Care4Calais from their ministry fund.
We are sending two cars to Calais with volunteers to work at Care4Calais on Saturday April 28th for the day. One will leave at 5am and the other at 6am, returning by 10pm. We have some spare seats at the moment. If you’d like to come, please email back. Donations also welcome, especially of money. The idea that day is to distribute 750 specially made packs containing clothes, toiletries and food.
Thanks, as always, for your interest and support.
