WrapUp London

The UKs biggest winter coat drive is back from 8th - 28th November 2021 and we need your help!

the mission

Get coats to those who need them

In an ideal world we wouldn't need to collect coats to keep people warm. But the charities we work with need our help more than ever. Every November, we bring together hundreds of Londoners to collect, sort and distribute coats to charities and projects supporting service users. A coat doesn't only provide warmth, it is often a gateway for someone to access services to help them get back on their feet

Now over 10 years old, Wrap Up London has become one of the largest winter volunteering events in the city and a true celebration of just what can be achieved when people are willing to give their time. We will have pop up coat collection points across London from Monday 8th - Sunday 28th November 2021, as well as a physical presence in Waterloo, Victoria, London Bridge, Kings Cross and Moorgate stations on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th November from 7am-11am.

Sadly the number of people living in crisis in the city is rising, particularly those who are young and homeless. Wrap Up London shows the power that Londoners have when they come together as a community to help those most in need.
