I could write a chirrupping post about how many jars of blackcurrant jam we’ve made (50) and how we’ve had to stop because we’ve run out of jam jars. Or I could write a sad post about how I miss Mary. Both of them would be true.
But what’s eating away at me is the UK government’s callous attitude towards the refugees in Calais, who are desperate to get into the UK to settle and work. These are people fleeing from war, starvation and much, much worse.
I’ve just found a charity in Calais that does great work with them. It’s here. If you would like to donate, follow my link and then click on ‘Contact.’
And the United Nations High Council for Refugees also helps refugees. Here’s a link to their website.
