Donation Collection Point

Update Fall 2015: This collection point is no longer functioning, sorry! Calais has gotten a lot bigger and the CMS group no longer organizes collections, so best to get in touch with charities there if you’re interested in donating.

We now have a permanent collection point for donations for Calais
