SJB Send help for Calais Refugees
Jason Searle and Tim Connolly, both barristers at St John’s Buildings, will be driving to Calais on 21 September to deliver essential items to people living in refugee camps.
They have made contact with staff at a camp and have been asked to collect the following items only:
- Sleeping bags
- Sleeping mats
- Winter clothing
If you would like to contribute these items, SJB barrister Kerry Holt has set up a Wishlist on Amazon, listing specific products that are desperately needed in the Calais camps. Please click on this link to be taken to the page.
Please select the number of each item you wish to buy, and then give our Manchester Chambers as the delivery address.
If you would prefer to support with a financial donation, Plan UK is running a refugee crisis appeal. To find out more and donate click here.
Finally, we are also supporting thousands of our colleagues from across the legal sector who have already donated to the Lawyers’ Billable Hour Appeal. This money will go to Save the Children. To find out more and donate click here.
