Donate one of your old coats or jackets to Wrap Up London and they’ll pass it on to someone who needs it most this winter.
For the ninth year running, the good folk over at Wrap Up London are running their winter coat collection and this means:
You can clear out some much-needed wardrobe space
They’ll redistribute your gear to local charities who directly support people who are homeless, refugees, the elderly, people fleeing domestic violence, or those who are at risk
You can feel good knowing that you’ve helped keep a vulnerable Londoner warm this winter
We find it pretty easy to moan about leaving the house on a bitterly cold November morning (even with a parka and gloves on), but things are much tougher for those less fortunate. Without access to warm clothing or shelter, vulnerable Londoners will be suffering badly when the mercury plummets. That’s why the work that Wrap Up London does is so important.
The support that’s provided doesn’t stop at the trench coats and woolly jumpers, though. When someone collects a jacket from a local charity partner, they’ll be able to receive practical advice and be given the opportunity to receive ongoing support to improve their situation long-term.
To make things super simple for us all, Wrap Up London are organising collections all over town next week (11-13th November) at tube stations, schools, places of worship and over 100 companies.
Here is a list of just a few of them, but check out their website for the full details.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Donate your unwanted coats and jackets at the collection points between the 11-13th November
Help them out by volunteering at a tube station or a sorting session. Got a van? They really need some help ferrying these clothes across the city.
Host your own collection. Make it easy for your fellow colleagues, classmates or netball players by organising your own coat collection. Then plaster your Instagram with the photos using the hashtag #WrapUpLondon
