Other ways you can help:

More re Saturday June 18th:

It is now less than 2 weeks to go for the convoy... There are now limited places left on the ferry, please book asap to avoid disappointment. You can register here http://www.convoytocalais.org

If you've already registered we'll see you at Whitehall at 8:30am. Remember we will be leaving promptly at 9:30am and we will need to get you there well in advance to line everybody up.

This is the place to make a huge political statement about the refugee crisis and show that the public rejects the government's racist narrative. We want to make sure that the political message, 'Refugees Welcome Here' is felt right at the heart of the political establishment. That's why assembling on Whitehall's so important. That's why we discourage you to go straight to Dover. If you can't come all the way to Calais but do want to be part of that political statement let us know.

If you are unable to be part of the political protest in London and are intending on only bringing aid, please let is known asap on the calaisconvoy@gmail.com email. We must know how many vehicles will be joining us at Whitehall.

Also we will be transferring aid from cars into the Lorry at Whitehall. Another important reason to make it. You could also bring your aid on Friday 17th at the Friday night rally in central London at the Emmanuel Centre too! see below

Please note, no aid can be delivered directly to the camp, this is on the advice of all the major aid agencies on the ground.
Aid distribution has to be carefully managed by professionals without exception.

Lastly please volunteer to be part of the stewarding team in the 18th.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

We will need those of you without prior arrangements to get involved from early on the day, help transfer aid to appropriate vehicles and help with directions at Whitehall and in Calais. You will be briefed in advance. People with experience in the Calais welcome but not essential. Please email calaisconvoy@gmail.com to register your interest.

Donation collection
------------------------------------------------------------
This Saturday there will be a collection of Calais donations. If you have anything to donate this would be a good time. Even if you are coming on the convoy, donating it in advance means it can be sorted and unloaded more easily on the day.

The drop off is at:
Access Self Storage King's Cross
Belgrove House
WC1H 8AA

You can drop things off between 11-4. They will also need help with sorting donations, so please spend some time there if you can.

Pre-Convoy Rally
------------------------------------------------------------
On Friday 17th there will be a rally in London. All welcome, even if you can't come on the Convoy.

6.30-8.30
Emmanuel Centre, Marsham Street, London, SW1P 3DW
