Kathleen Harrison is organising a trip into Edinburgh next Thursday evening (10th) to take donated items to the Edinburgh drop off point for CalAid. She is hoping to fill the car with donations, so please have a look at the list of items required on the CalAid Edinburgh’s Facebook Page and if you can donate any items from the list, drop them off at 1 Council Houses, Garvald before Thursday 10th September.
Please make sure you consult the list first as, due to limited space, CalAid are collecting SPECIFIC items required right now and they cannot store anything excess to requirements. The list is here:
CalAid are a group of volunteers collecting urgently needed donations for those living in the Calais refugee camps. The situation in Calais is part of a wider migration crisis in Europe – caused largely by the displacement of people from war-torn countries such as Syria, Sudan, Afghanistan and Eritrea. In addition to offering support and assistance, CalAid hope to change the perception of this crisis from one of hostility and fear to one of concern and compassion.
Thank you for your support.
