Help others to Wrap Up warm with Safestore

Help others to Wrap Up warm with Safestore
This year has been a busy, unexpected and difficult year for everyone. We have all struggled in one way or another, and bright spots feel hard to come by. 

Luckily, there is a little bit of sunshine on the horizon – this is the ninth year running that Safestore has supported Hands On London and its partners with their yearly Wrap Up campaign. What better way to feel a little more cheerful about the year we’ve had than giving to someone else? Read on to put a spring in your step with Wrap Up.

What is Wrap Up?

Haven’t heard about this amazing campaign? Hands On London and Human Appeal’s Wrap Up 2020 campaign encourages you to donate old coats to help others stay warm this winter. Running from the 9th to 23rd November 2020 (and to the 25th November in London), it is a wonderful way to help others during this difficult year.

How many coats are collected?

Last year, over 33,000 coats were collected and then sent out to over 100 charities across the UK. Nearly 159,000 coats have been collected since the campaign launched in 2011, and we hope that we at Safestore can encourage you to help us collect more coats than ever before in 2020!

Stay safe with Safestore 

We know that at the moment, you will be staying at home more than going out – and if you’re anything like us, that has resulted in some serious cleaning and tidying. If you have a pile of old coats lying around, now is the perfect time to clear them out of your space, and give to a worthy cause at the same time. 

While you won’t want to be traveling unnecessarily, this is a great chance to drop off your donation easily without going out of your way. Simply bag up your coat and donate it at a range of Safestore locations in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Leicester

The season of giving

This collection is an invaluable resource for so many in need, with Safestore’s contribution being vital. 

Jon Meech, CEO, Hands on London says: “The winter months can be unforgiving for those sleeping rough or unable to afford a winter coat and the ‘Wrap Up’ campaigns hope to offer support and compassion to those desperately in need. Safestore have been a key partner for us since 2012 and we’re really grateful for the invaluable free storage space provided at stores across the UK. Your support has a huge impact on the coat collection campaign as it allows us to collect, store, sort and pack up all the donated coats so that they can be easily distributed to people across the capital this winter.”

So get digging through your old coats and donate to this incredible cause. Without much to put us in a Christmassy mood this year, donating is a fantastic way to get into the season of giving!
