Next Calais Light trip set for June

On 21-23 June, Calais Light, the car-sharing convoy which takes a bunch of like-minded, friendly volunteers to Calais to work with refugee charities, sets off again on trip number 11. Elisabeth Tanner, parish secretary at St. Edward the Confessor and Calais Light member, says: “We’re returning to Care4Calais, to sort aid in their amazingly well-run warehouse.  Every afternoon all volunteers  go out with Care4Calais’s team to meet refugees living rough. We chat with them, listen to their stories, offer them solidarity, normality, kindness and essential services. Our March weekend was a huge success – moving, unexpectedly joyful, crucial. So come with us! Sign up for a convoy at or donate by emailing: [email protected] Choose Love!”
