Unite with refugees in France


The Chaplaincy team from The Park campus at University of Gloucestershire visited the refugee camp, known as the Jungle, in Calais last week.  The situation there is very desperate and tensions have grown in the past few days following the death of a migrant trying to board a lorry.  See the BBC link here (and good embedded video). http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-37606113.

The Calais refugee camp is under imminent threat of being demolished, meaning thousands of refugees will loose their tiny makeshift homes. With winter around the corner an online petition has been set up to stop this before its too late.

Please, if you feel able, do sign this online petition to Amber Rudd
