Donations wanted to support refugees in Calais as part of a DMU Local volunteering trip


Students from various DMU faculties are travelling to Calais on Monday 4 November to take part in a DMU Local volunteering trip. The trip is delivered in partnership with the Journeys Festival​ and ArtReach.

Over the course of four days, 13 students will be getting involved in delivering arts and craft workshops in a community centre, sorting through items in a donation depot and spending the day in a community kitchen.
