Collection for the Calais “jungle” – St Gregory’s Church

Are you able to donate urgent supplies for the refugees at Calais?  With autumn fast approaching, the need for warm clothing is becoming more pressing. In response, St Gregory’s Church is open to take urgent supplies and pass them onto a team of people in the diocese who plan to travel to Calais early October. Please bring your donations to the church and place in the collection bags which will be clearly marked and which are at the back of the church.


Items required are as follows:

• Mens’ shoes / trainers (euro sizes 41-46/uk 7-10);
• Jackets & jumpers (medium or small sizes);
• Tracksuit bottoms / Jeans, (waist 28-32)
• Toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrushes, soaps)
• Travel bags
• Tents / tarpaulins
• Sleeping bags
• Candles / torches

For further information, please contact Barbara Tyler on 01787 373145.  Thank you.
