I would like to be able to go back to Calais for ten days in June to volunteer at the refugee camp there.

Please see my blog for more information: http://teessidetocalais.wordpress.com

There are over 3,000 refugees living at the camp.

It isn't acceptable that people are living (and dying) like this in a country so close to us. Refugees are risking their lives trying to jump on the back of lorries to attempt to cross the channel into England. Recently a pregnant woman lost her baby as she fell off the back of a lorry.

In Calais, the volunteer work involves litter picking, distributing supplies, sorting donations, constructing shelters, and trying to stay positive so as to keep people's spirits up (or do what is possible to keep people from sinking into despair).

Any money kindly donated will go towards my travel and accommodation costs. Any extra will be donated to the charities working with Calais at the moment.

I will keep everyone updated on what I'm doing, and will report back from Calais.
