  1. Where can we drop donations in leeds? Will you be taking items on Saturday 29th or Monday 31st August ?

  2. I am trying to get people knitting baby and childrens clothes, hats and scarves. where could we deliver them to?

  3. I can get hold of light weight yoga mats in carry cases would these be suitable .. Easy to carry and would give people a clean place to sit when needed … If so I shall arrange to deliver them somewhere . …

  4. that sounds good thanks, but we don’t know when our next convoy of donations will go to Calais (one has gone this week), so please hold on to any donations and keep an eye out for updates here, thanks

  5. hi, sorry just seen this, hope you got hold of us by another means. if you didn’t please hold on to your donation if possible until we make another call out when we know when our next convoy is going to Calais. many thanks

  6. I have a large tent and camping equipment could you tell me where is my nearest drop point to Ilkley? Thank you.
