Dorset singing legend Billy Bragg is calling on us to help refugees in Calais have a better christmas.

The activist is heading to France to support the volunteers working with Dorchester Direct Aid.

The minibus is full of food and warm clothing, kindly donated from people across South and West Dorset.

Billy popped into our news studios here at Wessex FM and has been telling Justin Gladdis, how the mission came about.



If you want to donate or help with Dorchester Direct Aid you should email julian@nanglerarebooks.co.uk
