The unloved boots were sitting at the Glastonbury recycling centre when team member Liz Clegg came up with the brilliant idea of donating them to the migrant camp.
A group of volunteers took charge of pairing, sizing and quality controlling the wellies before Liz transported around 500 pairs to Calais, alongside 2,000 unused ponchos and some first aid kits.
Liz worked alongside French charity Association Salam to distribute the donations, in addition to offering some first aid training.
Glastonbury Festival also donated bin bags to help with a new recycling system to be installed within the camp, after it became apparent that there is a huge waste and recycling crisis within ‘The Jungle’.
