Wrap Up London set for biggest year ever, with 22,000 coat pledge

Most of us have an old coat at the back of our wardrobe that we no longer want or need. Often we’re conscious of it gathering dust, often we don’t know what to do with it. That’s where Wrap Up London comes in handy ­ the annual charity coat collection drive from Hands On London (registered charity 1140291) inassociation with William Blair, London Underground and Safe Store, which this year will run during the week of 9th­ – 13th November.

Returning for its fifth year, the campaign looks set to be the biggest, best and most recognisable yet. They are asking Londoners to donate their old coats, which will be given directly to help those most likely to struggle to keep warm during the winter months via homeless shelters, refugee centres, women’s refuges and other charities.

Drop off tube stations will be: Kings Cross, Victoria, Charing Cross, London Bridge, Liverpool Street, Canary Wharf, Highbury & Islington and Euston.
Coats can also be dropped off at Clapham North, Kings Cross and Notting Hill Safe Stores

This year with the help of over 1000 Hands On London volunteers, the campaign target is to gather 22,000 coats, with an extra special plea for mens coats which are traditionally in higher demand.
