Come to Calais – Refugee Volunteer Visit information evening (Marlow)

February 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

“Have you ever thought about volunteering to help refugees but not known
quite where to start? The Marlow Refugee Action Group together with church
groups in Marlow and Maidenhead are planning an umbrella volunteering
opportunity during Lent 2018. Instead of giving up
chocolate or social media, why not take the opportunity to make a real
difference and come on a volunteering trip to work with the groups that provide
for refugees in Calais?

There are no longer any official refugee camps in Calais and Dunkirk but people
still gather here in the hope of reaching the UK, often with the aim of re-uniting
with family who are already there. There are currently around 1,000 refugees
sleeping rough in Calais and Dunkirk. We would be joining the volunteers who work in the kitchens and in the warehouse.

If you are interested, why not find a space in your diary when you might visit
Calais (between February 18th and March 31st). We recommend three days, but
don’t worry if its only for a day….or 5!
To find out more come to one of our information evenings:
12th February 8pm Marlow URC
15th February 8pm Maidenhead URC
