This November, Hands On London will be running their extraordinarily excellent campaign, ‘Wrap Up London’ – an annual coat collection (gently – no holes pleasey) of used coats which will be re-distributed to refuges for women and children, refugee centres, homeless shelters and elderly centres across London and Greater London.
They need your help.

So chickadees, They need your help, and this is how you can get involved:
Hands On London need volunteers to carry out various tasks during the campaign, including helping to collect coats at one of tube and rail stations in central London 5th – 7th November. If you’d like to find out more about volunteering, please get in touch here.
Host a Coat Collection at your office!
If you’d like to organise your own London coat collection, please get in touch here.
Donate a coat!
If you can’t get to one of these stations, there are also some additional storage centres which you can take your coats to in your own time – find more info on this here.
So, um, no excuses then.
It’s time to pull out your parkas and dig out your duffles – this is a call to duty.
In a city as wonderful and generous as ours, there is absolutely no reason in the world why any Londoner should suffer, or worse die, from being cold this Christmas.
No reason at all.
