A team of students from York are hoping to help…Abandoned animals? Homeless war veterans? Disabled pensioners or children?
… the thousands of migrants living in makeshift camps in Calais.Oh. I suppose I should have guessed…
Five University of York students, Emma Bilson, Grace Redmore, Alex Musto, Miki White and Robyn Hillerby, will travel to Calais at the end of next month and have urged the public to donate goods or money to help support those living in the camp.
Emma, 29, is a postgraduate in social work, and said the team had been inspired to go and help the refugees after seeing them on the news.Social work. Great!
"I know some people don't agree with the Government and it's controversial, but to us it didn't matter. It's just about that human side of it. They are stuck living in horrible conditions, and it's a five-hour drive away from York, it's not a million miles away, and it's just nice to be able to do something personal."And get credit and networking opportunities amongst the government quangos and fakecharities you’ll be begging for a job from too, eh?
