Do something warm this winter

It’s back for the 4th year running. In partnership with Hands On London, we’re spreading the warmth by wrapping up Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leicester.

So, if you have an old winter coat to spare, now’s your chance to hand it over to someone who really needs it.

Wrap Up is an award-winning winter campaign. You hand over your spare winter coat and we re-home it to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence. Simple. We’re into one thing only – keeping people warm.

How to donate your coat

This year, we need men’s, women’s, and children’s coats - especially men’s coats – so we can help keep Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leicester warm. You can hand your coat over at one of the drop off points below in November and we’ll re-home it in the following weeks.

Where to donate

Drop off your coat(s) at Manchester Piccadilly Station and Birmingham New Street Station from 11th - 13th November from 7.00am - 11.00am.

Human Appeal Leicester, 142 Evington Road, LE2 1HL, from 11th - 24th November, Monday - Friday from 10.00am - 5.00pm.

Or at one of the participating Safestore storage centres from 11th - 24th November.

Please note we cannot accept coats after the drop off date. We also do not accept fur or any other clothing items other than coats.

We are also a proud charity sponsor of Wrap Up London.
