Get involved with Wrap Up London this week by donating your old coats

Donate your old coats to the Wrap Up London Campaign which is running from tomorrow for the rest of this week!

Wrap Up London collects your unwanted coats at London train stations and then distributes them to over 170 organisations, which help a range of people in need including the homeless, elderly, refugees, women who have fled domestic violence and children in poverty. The whole campaign is organised by Hands on London.
