Human Appeal, one of the UK’s fastest growing charities, has launched its annual ‘Wrap Up’ winter coat donation campaign from 7-22 November, with a total of seven UK cities taking part of its campaign.
Now in its seventh year, ‘Wrap Up’ is a call to action for those who are able to donate winter coats that they no longer need. Donations will be distributed among the UK’s most vulnerable communities, including women and children in shelters, the homeless and refugees to help keep them warm this winter.
Last year, a total of 5,219 coats were donated across the country. This year, Human Appeal are hoping for their biggest ‘Wrap Up’ yet, with the aim of reaching a total of 7,000 coat donations.
As well as coat donations, this year members of the British public are also able to donate £10 to Human Appeal to provide the vulnerable with a winter essentials kit, including thermal hats, scarves, gloves and blankets.
This year’s Wrap Up is being supported by car rental company Enterprise, who are offering up their fleet of vans to transport donated coats, as well as providing additional drop off venues in some participating cities.
Coats can be donated around the UK at the following locations, and an online donation for £10 can be made here, in lieu of coats to donate.
Abid Shah, UK Programmes Manager at Human Appeal, comments: ‘Wrap Up is one of our biggest campaigns of the year in the UK, and we’d like to extend our gratitude to our partners Safestore and Enterprise for offering locations for coat donations. Every November, we ask the public to put their spare coats and jackets to use and donate them to a worthy cause. This year, our efforts are amplified by the ongoing cost of living crisis in the UK, and we anticipate an increase in demand for donated winter coats. Human Appeal urges any families with spare jackets to donate this winter.’
