For £500 we can bring films and fun THIS WEEKEND (Fri 8th - 10th July) for the unaccompanied children in the refugee camp in Calais to help take their minds off the pain and trauma of their past, current situation and uncertain future.

PLAY 4 CALAIS brings pop-up cinema and play-time to the 600+ children and 6000+ adults living in The Jungle in Calais. With little to do and tensions high, refugees are desperate for respite care and community building activities to take part in.

A few brief hours of cinema screenings and play-time helps people take their minds off the pain and trauma they've already experienced and often continue experiencing. Every trip we make, myself and the volunteers are always met with open arms and great smiles and asked to return again as soon as possible... Which costs money. So, funds permitting, we head to Calais as often as we can; as such, our fundraising efforts are ongoing.

PLAY 4 CALAIS is hosted by the Women and Children's Centre and The Baloo's Boys Youth Centre.  We are generously supported by The Lexi Cinema in London and roaming pop-up cinema The Nomad with technical equipment.
