Movement on the Ground

Movement on the Ground

Thank-you to all of the families who have donated clothing and equipment to our appeal on behalf of Movement on the Ground.

All of the donations are supporting the winterisation programme on the Greek islands of Lesbos and Samos where refugees have continued to arrive with very little attention from the media. In September alone more than 1000 people have arrived in little inflatable boats. The camps are already full and the Greeks cannot cope with this crisis alone.

We have until the end of September to collect as much as we can. If you have any of the items below you can spare, send them into school.

Blankets / Sleeping bags, tents, camping mats / yoga mats / gym mats (no-inflatables), winter footwear for all (boots, wellies), winter coats, jumpers / fleeces, NEW underwear for children & adults, winter socks for children & adults, thermal underwear for children & adults, scarves / hats / gloves for children & adults, towels, nappies, sanitary towels (no tampons), soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste
