We are going to do various things that help the children of in Dunkirk. Our plans have had to become quite flexible as things changed in Calais and Dunkirk. We are very grateful that you have adapted with us.


Connor is going to fix the donated bikes and show kids how to do basic maintenance for themselves.


Karen's school (Millburn Academy )raised £1034 for the Hummingbird project which is building a much needed school in the Grand Synthe camp. She is volunteering with Maktab and ABC.


Joni off to do what she does best.....use art as therapy and she is taking the laundry wands to Calais to see if it can be used in the new secret camps.


The camp is so big that kids have space to finally be free. People have donated 54 bikes but they need repair. Connor is off to do just that. He needs inner tubes, tools, tires, cable, oil....anything not used by him will be used by the kids he teaches to maintain their own bikes. I am going to show them how to make giant bubbles and sock puppets among other things.


22/03/2016 - Our plans have had to be quit fluid. Things have been so changable in each camp. We are very happy with our latest part of the adventure - thanks Karen you are an inspiration. We are taking 3 bikes which we will ride onto the ferry at Dover and then use as transport in Dunkirk. At the end we will leave then in Dunkirk. its sdo perfect I can't stop smiling.

25/03/2016 - Demand for Connors bike tech skill are growing. We are so excited to be able to help in such a direct way. Thank you. Joni has been asked to help at the women's centre and purchased more art supplies to use and leave. Karen is taking lots of gardening equipment which seems the best way to help.... gardening not only provides food to eat but its great for mental health and social contact.

Who is going on this trip - Joni Phippin, Connor Gray and Karen.

What will you do there -  We will work in any area that needs us. Fixing, teaching, sorting, canteen, sorting, kids area. ANYTHING needing done.

When- 27th March- 3rd April

Why- because it takes 170 volunteers to safely run the new camp. Because there are kids waiting desperately for bikes and fantastic people have donated bike.... both just need love to bring them together. Because we can and we should.
