Help Londoners to Wrap Up This Winter

By donating cosy coats you no longer need at two drop off points in Fulham

A huge number of coats were donated during a previous year's drive

November 27, 2023

Do you have a cosy winter coat you no longer need? Wrap Up London, a project run by volunteering charity HandsOn London, is collecting pre-loved warm coats to be shared among frontline charities who are supporting people through the cold conditions this winter.

Wrap Up London runs through this week until Sunday 3 December.

There are over 40 drop-off points across London, including two in Fulham - Safestore Fulham at 37 Munster Road and Fulham Works, on the first floor of Fulham Broadway shopping centre.

Once the coats are collected they will be forwarded to a central sorting hub at Morden Safestore and forwarded to charities working around London.

You can find out more about this and other projects run by HandsOn London.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
