Donate your coats and jackets as part of this year's Wrap Up London campaign at Broadgate.
11, 12, 18 & 19 November, 10.30am-2pm
Wrap Up London is an annual coat collection campaign run by Hands On London. Every November, the campaign brings together hundreds of volunteers and thousands of other Londoners, giving their time to donate, receive, sort and distribute warm coats to help people in need keep warm over the winter period.
Last November, the Wrap Up campaign collected over 27,000 warm coats which found their way to over a hundred front line charities, including homelessness organisations, refuges and family centres. Now entering its 10th Year, Wrap Up London has become one of the largest winter volunteering events in the city and a true celebration of just what can be achieved when people combine their collective efforts to do good.
The number of people living in crisis in the city is rising, and the winter months look set to be the worst for people already suffering from homelessness and poverty. From local community initiatives to front line organisations, the covid-19 pandemic has shown how neighbours and communities can join together to support those in need in times of crisis. A person’s spare coat and another’s spare time can not only help keep a person warm, but keep them alive.
Wrap Up London will be collecting coats at Broadgate on 11, 12, 18 & 19 November, 10.30am-2pm at the entrance to Broadgate Circle from Liverpool Street Station.
