We’re raising funds for two charities doing incredible work in Calais and Dunkirk. The Refugee Community Kitchen feeds over 2000 every day and is currently building four community kitchen structures in the new camp in Dunkirk. L'Auberge des Migrants is a grassroots charity based in Calais, supporting the refugee community since 2008. There are no major aid organisations supplying aid such as food, clothing, bedding or shelter, so L’Auberge (along with Help Refugees) has taken on the task of delivering all of these, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They also have a team of volunteers building much needed shelters in the camps, getting people out of tents and giving them somewhere warm and dry to sleep. These grassroots organisations rely entirely on donations and volunteers so please dig deep and support the amazing work they do.
