Dulwich2Dunkirk has joined forces with UK Action for Refugees to collect non-perishable food at a charity football match between Dulwich Hamlet FC and FC Assryia on Wednesday (9 March 2016).
We are asking our supporters, friends and family to bring us tinned and dried food such as beans and rice, which will be donated to people living in camps in France, Syria and refugees in the UK who struggle to make ends meet.
UK Action For Refugees are sending a number of containers of aid and supplies out to Syria, the first of which left in February.
Dulwich2Dunkirk co-founder and Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust Board member Jack Spearman, said: “We have been to the camps a number of times since October delivering food, sleeping bags and other supplies. I’ve seen how much difference the donations make, even a bag of rice or a tin of chickpeas helps.”

- Cans of vegetables, fruit or fish – ring pull cans
- Oil or ghee
- Long life pitta bread
- Instant porridge and soup
