DHFC fans asked to bring items to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Calais


This Saturday the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust would like to encourage members and fans to help with a collection for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Calais.  Board members (Jack Spearman and Dave Rogers) will be travelling to Calais to deliver supplies.

A collection point will be set up immediately left after you enter through the turnstile at Champion Hill for items that can be taken to help people that are in dire need of our support.

This is not a problem that is far away, but it is in on our doorstep.  Indeed, Calais is only a few miles further than our furthest league away game this year in Leiston.

Items that are needed include:

  • Shoes (mostly Men’s – walking boots or dark trainers)
  • Tents
  • Travelling Bags
  • Candles
  • Socks
  • Jackets
  • Food (non perishable and no pasta items)
  • Trousers
  • Waterproofs
  • Jumpers/Hoodies
  • Leggings /tights
  • Wellies/waterproof boots
  • Underwear
  • Hats/Scarfs
  • Plastic bags
  • Books
  • Toiletries

For a more comprehensive list please see the article from our friends at Brixton Buzz, which also mentions other drop off points, if you are unable to bring anything to the game this Saturday.

We will also be collecting donations through our Go Fund Me page for anyone who would like to contribute financially.

These donations will be used to fund items from the approved list.

Thank you in advance for your support.
