is there anywhere to give unwanted clothes for refugees in Lewisham? I don't know if there's a central point for the aid agencies taking stuff to Calais so we can drop stuff off locally

I always take stuff to the BHF in Catford ( I have a giftaid card) but thought I'd give to the refugees as I would guess they arrive in Calais with no clothing at all (and I, like a lot of people in this country, have too much)
