My name is Emma and I am a teacher in Glenageary Killiney National School. This half term I plan to work with the unaccompanied children of the Calais Refugee Camp. More than 1,000 children aged between eight and 17 have arrived alone to one of the scariest, unsafe places in Europe with no grown-ups to protect and provide for them. As winter draws in their tents are no match for the cold, floods are a constant problem and their future is uncertain as the French authorities have declared that it is their intention to demolish the camp.
Please help me to try and make the lives of these children a little easier. I am collecting warm clothes size small and medium, shoes sizes 40+, sleeping bags, unlocked smart phones, also the boys love comics and sports magazines of any kind. Donations can be left into GKNS, Wyvern Estate, Killiney Road on or before this Friday, October 21st.

The church will be decorated from 9am this Saturday, October 15th, for the Harvest . All volunteers are welcome to come and help (no experience necessary!). Donations of vegetables, fruit or flowers will be gratefully received and these will go to the Capuchin Fathers afterwards.
