For the third year running we are supporting the charity Hands on London with their Wrap Up London appeal. Our aim, is to help them reach their target of collecting 15,000 unwanted, old and used coats for those most likely to struggle to keep warm during the winter months.
What is Wrap Up London?
Wrap Up began with just London asking members of the public to give their old coats new life by donating them to charity. They have now expanded to Wrap Up Manchester, Wrap Up Birmingham and Wrap Up Glasgow. The coats are then distributed directly to those most in need, who struggle to keep warm during the winter months. The donated coats are distributed via homeless shelters, refugee centres, elderly organisations, women’s refuges, children’s centres and various other charities.
This year’s Wrap Up campaign will run from the 13th – 24th November. Coats can also be dropped off directly into the hands of the Wrap Up team at London Underground stations across the network and Manchester Piccadilly Station between 13th and 15th.
