B£ heads to Calais

Max of the B£ is driving to Calais this Saturday morning to drop off donated supplies and help out a bit. You could easily get involved too!

If  you have any of the following items and would like to donate them please drop them into the Brixton Pound Shop (3 Atlantic Road, SW9 8HX) by 1pm Friday 27th November in order for them to make it onto the ferry! Anything you can give will be much appreciated.

(Although please do not be tempted to donate any items not listed here, as there is no storage in Calais for surplus items.)

· SHOES, mainly in men’s sizes (these are really badly needed)
· Big coats
· Waterproofs (in the form of coats/ trousers/ tarpaulin)
· Good quality trousers/ jeans
· Long johns/general warm underclothes
· Boxers
· Socks
· Gloves, scarves, hats
· Warm sleeping stuff
· Towels
· Shampoo
· Food – tinned or dry

Many thanks!
