WrapUp London

We are no longer collecting coats for WrapUp London 2021. We are now in the process of sorting your coat donations to distribute to charities and projects across London before Christmas!

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, WrapUp 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.

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.
