Van Filling for a Car Boot Sale

We are doing Tansley Car Boot Fair on the 14th so on the 13th we need to fill Keith's lovely BIG van with donated stuff to sell. Please come along and give us a hand. Or both hands.

We will meet at the portacabins at the end of the car park at the end of Meadow Road, Derby DE1 2BH.

Autumn Car Boot Sale for DRS - Tansley

Please come and join us to sell donated items to raise funds for DRS projects!

Yes, it's an early start and yes, it will probably rain....but we always have a fab day and have made up to £500 on past occasions to spend on essentials such as fuel to get us over to Calais/Paris etc. Or on urgent items needed such as in Dunkirk Women's camp which recently burned down.

You don't have to come for the whole morning. Just pop and see us for an hour or two. SOME volunteers need more beauty sleep than others (you know who you are!)

Hope to see you there!

Derby University Volunteer Fair

This is an excellent opportunity to recruit more volunteers to the DRS family and to spread the word about what we do! We have booked a table at the event so we need a couple of people to run it. This will just mean chatting about what we do, handing out leaflets etc.
Because it is on a Thursday, this is also our regular sort day. This means that we need your help even more - to run two events at the same time. (I know Steve is a superman but that might be beyond even his capabilities...)
Please let Julie know if you fancy it!! Thanks everso!

Steveless in St Anne's

It's our big moving day and there's loads to do and Steve won't be there and Julie is panicking??!!!! 

if you can offer an hour or two on Thursday morning we would be really grateful!! We will start at the portacabins and gradually move ourselves over to our new home throughout the morning. We need pop-up tent experts, heavy lifters, feng shui practitioners, people who are good with a hammer and nail....but most of all we need that team spirit that makes it all possible!

If you'd like to take charge of an area all the better! We need 1 or 2 people to take charge of the Packs4Calais project, the Moses basket project and the stationery/office supplies to make sure they find a suitable new home in the new place.
