Being back in the camp as it was being cleared of burnt shelters and buckled kitchens was a surreal experience after being there just over a year ago when we were building this camp which was to serve as a place of refuge and safety for thousands of displaced people.

Here’s a little update:

Outreach food is still growing in number in and around Calais (180-200 meals per day), as well as increasing food to Secours Catholique (160-200 per day) a charity who provide ongoing legal and educational support to refugees in the area.

Dunkirk hot food output stays steady at 500-600, with free shops managing to meet needs of camp population, our new shop van working to capacity very happily everyday, many thanks to thoughtful and generous donation of this van from Calais Action.

It’s clear that from our rising output to all small camps, squats and individuals sleeping rough that numbers are growing in the area.

Many thanks the crew here for herculean baking efforts, pulling an all night baking session, yealding 110 gastro’s of bread, that’s 880 generous portions of fresh focaccia style bread.

RCK mobile kitchen truck is nearing operational condition, with first plumbed gas burner tested successfully, water proof socket in place and sealing, painting and external fixing underway.

We’ve had a little re-shuffle in our warehouse space, improving our storage and working area.

With all these jobs in play everyday we need your support as ever, so if you’re thinking of coming down and getting involved, or supporting from home, please do,get in touch and tell a friend!

Many many thanks to you all for the ongoing help and support, have a wonderful day!

Much love from all RCK team
