Event Details

An evening of adventure talks in London to help the refugees in The Jungle at Calais.

An evening of adventure talks in London to help raise funds, kit and awareness for the refugees in The Jungle at Calais. Community coming together to make a difference. Come and join in!

Have you ever slept outside on a winter's night? Imagine doing it without a sleeping bag, or a hat or a decent coat. And it's getting colder every day as winter approaches us.

Here's how you can make a difference. Do you have any outdoors gear that you don't use? A sleeping bag, a heavy jacket, gloves or base layers that sit unused at the bottom of your wardrobe? Go on, dig them out and... bring them to the London Irish Center Wed 30 Sept, 6.30pm.

In return, the Kindness Of Strangers event will be an evening of adventure. A chance for the outdoors community to come together & hear London's top adventurers tell their stories of when they were helped on their journeys by kind strangers. Mix with fellow kind strangers and our speakers by the bar and watch how a community can band together to make a difference.

We'll drive to Calais on Friday 2nd of Oct to pass the gear on to an NGO that works in the camp.

And if you can't make it but still want to donate, you can choose to donate directly via this Eventbrite Ticket page too.

(All monetary costs of hosting the event will be covered by the hosts, & a big software company who would prefer to remain nameless will be matching everything raised up to 7.5K)

He hadn't time enough to see the world so Ray is exploring it for him with their daughter, working through the A-Z of countries. When she'd not doing that she like's to think she's living vicariously through Dan & Ferg's adventures!
