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.
You can read more about the campaign here: http://wrapuplondon.org.uk/#home

Volunteer to help with coat collections (may be a little late for this) or to help with post collection sorting and distribution of coats. Email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will give you all the information you need.
Help to spread the word to your colleagues, friends and family so we can all de-clutter our homes and keep someone else warm this winter. #wrapuplondon
What a good idea and even better if you cover Cannon Street and Charing Cross. You’ll be seen by Shell, Whitehall, West End and the City as they come in each day from Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Add Waterloo and you’ll get all the spies as well.
