BE A LIGHT IN THE DARK

PLAY 4 CALAIS was founded in December 2015, as a grassroots initiative to provide pop-up cinema, safe-play, football, cricket and vital aid to the 10,000 children, teenagers and adult refugees living in the Calais "Jungle". As the needs of our users changed and the refugees were relocated, so we adapted to become PLAY 4 CALAIS & BEYOND.

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 escapism through cinema or therapy through sports helps people take their minds off the pain and trauma they've already experienced and often continue experiencing on their journeys to saftey.  The PLAY 4 CALAIS & BEYOND motto is "be a light in the dark", which is both literally and figuratively what we are during these difficult times.
