The Wild Washerwomen

**Update - our washers & drier are now being installed in the warehouse, and our van is being used to help refugees with the disruption of eviction by the French authorities. If you can help with the ongoing costs of this we would be most grateful!**

Many residents of the Jungle in Calais have lost their homes and families and are now just clinging on to their dignity. It is hard enough for them to get a shower, let alone have access to laundry facilities.

The Wild Washerwomen (Flora, Zoe & Clem) have already raised funds to equip a van with two washing machines, a tumble drier, and a generator. They will be leaving Frome at the end of July and taking their fully equipped van to the Jungle where they will wash refugees clothes.

Having trained in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, the Wild Washerwomen will also provide informal English classes to refugees who are waiting for their laundry to be done. Weather permitting, they will also provide deckchairs and a supply of chai tea and biscuits!
