Be A Light In The Dark

Donate Now

PLAY 4 CALAIS started as a grassroots initiative to provide pop-up cinema, safe play, football and cricket to the children, teenagers and adult refugees living in the Calais "Jungle". As the needs of our users changed and the refugees were relocated, so we adapted and expanded to become PLAY 4 CALAIS & BEYOND. Our motto is "be a light in the dark" which is both literally and figuratively what we are.

What's Being Said
"I visited the Calais Jungle with PLAY 4 CALAIS last month and I could see first hand the excellent work they're doing there. I saw them put together a football tournament for the young men of the camp which was a huge success. I will continue to support their vital work as much as I can in the future."
