They had a Mk6 Transit van and wanted to have 2 washing machines, a dryer, a waste water tank a bed for volunteers and a generator to power the laundrette. The idea was that you could find a place with a stand pipe, wash clothes and the drive to deposit the water off site.
We helped them to select appliances that were as low power and water consumption as possible as water supply and waste water dumping is an issue in many camps
The build took about 3 days and survived its first ‘wet’ run.
It was then taken to Calais refugee aid distribution centre spent a couple of days washing donated items then headed to the camp formally know as ‘the jungle’ and helped to wash cloths and bedding and has been touring Europe off and on ever since.
