Lynn and Wisbech Stop the War Coalition group is joining the Convoy to Calais on Saturday, June 18, to take supplies to the refugee camp.

War on Want and the unions UNITE and TSSA, among many others, will also be taking part with the crisis escalating.

Instead of addressing the issues, fences and detention centres are being built and people are being deported to war-zones where homes and lives have been destroyed. Food and clothing are also running short in the camps.

Jacqueline Mulhallen, one of the co-ordinators, said: “People in Wisbech have already donated £100 towards taking supplies over to Calais. We are collecting donations of food and clothing, particularly waterproof clothing, to take with us.

“We will be at the Rosmini Centre, Queens Road, Wisbech on Wednesday, June 8, from 6 to 7pm to receive it.”
