Well Hands on London are running their 3rd Wrap up London coat collection campaign and it starts TOMORROW! Their aim is to distribute 10,000 coats to over 100 charitable organisations over London, including homeless shelters, women's refuges, youth centres, refugee support groups, care homes, centres for the elderly, and food banks.
WOW I hear you say... what a great cause! So what can you do to help?
Donate a coat!
You can donate a coat to someone in need at any one of the Wrap up London tube stations between 13th and 15th November, 7am – 11am. Donations can be made at the following stations:
Highbury and Islington
For those that can’t make it to those collections, you can also donate at one of the four Safestore warehouses from 11th - 22nd November, during standard opening times, or at the Broadgate Welcome Centre (Finsbury Avenue Square, EC2M) from 11th - 15th November, 9am - 5pm. The Safestore warehouse locations are as follows:
Safestore Bermondsey (24 Old Jamaica Rd, Bermondsey, SE16 4AW)
Safestore Pentonville Rd (79-89 Pentonville Rd, N1 9LG)
Safestore Notting Hill (Camelford Walk, W11 1TX)
Safestore Clapham (4 Timber Mill Way, Gauden Rd, SW4 6LY)
For all those clients of mine out there who have bought new coats with me this season... think about donating that old one, so that someone who needs it can stay warm this winter! I know I will be. x
