2020 Auction For Cambridge Convoy Refugee Action Group - CamCRAG

Auction
Read more about the cause
CamCRAG is a registered charity entirely run by volunteers and dedicated to sending convoys to Calais with donations for the refugees living rough in the area. Whilst there, our volunteers assist the refugee aid organisations with food preparation, wood chopping and the sorting and distribution of donated tents, sleeping bags, clothing and toiletries.

CamCRAG also funds specific projects run by refugee aid organisations in Calais and Greece. As a small, independent charity we are able to provide funds quickly where there is urgent need, e.g., we have supported the Refugee Community Kitchen [https://www.refugeecommunitykitchen.com/] and Watershed [https://watershed-foundation.de/en/home]. All the money we raise goes towards providing aid or supporting our convoys.

Before COVID-19 struck, we sent convoys to Calais every six weeks and ran Donations Drop Off Days in and around Cambridge to collect the donations for each convoy. Since COVID-19, we have continued to collect and send donations both to Calais and to Greece, but we cannot send volunteers until COVID restrictions are lifted.
Our fundraising efforts have also been severely hampered by these restrictions, which is why we are holding this online Auction of Promises. We will spend the proceeds of this auction on shipping donations and on supporting practical refugee projects in Greece and northern France. Recent world events have eclipsed the refugee crisis from the British news but the refugees’ situation has become even more desperate as a result of both the pandemic and the fire in Moria Camp on Lesvos.

Please consider bidding for any Promises that appeal to you. You can also offer a Promise either directly here or e-mailing its details to volunteer@camcrag.org.uk. We will put it on the system for you.
We expect most participants from the Cambridge area. If you are based elsewhere, in-person experiences or large items that cannot be posted may not be appropriate Promises. You can still donate to CamCRAG. Visit https://camcrag.org.
