Winter Coat Drive
This November we were proud to support the Chestertons Calling London Winter Coat Drive by collecting coats, jackets and fleeces for vulnerable Londoners.
Calling London distributes the donations to over 30 charitable organisations – helping the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, those living in poverty, the elderly, refugees and children.
The impact of the pandemic has meant the demand for winter coats is likely to be higher than usual, with many more families facing financial difficulties.
Since 2014, Chestertons has helped the Calling London Coat Drive by opening their London branches throughout November as donation points for unwanted winter coats. They have gone from collecting 200 donations in the first year to over 5,000 coats and fleeces in 2020.
This year POSITIVE+ was proud to join the Winter Coat Drive by hosting our own donation point in our head office foyer and we are pleased to announce that we collected over 40 coats!
A big thank you to all of our wonderful colleagues, clients, families and friends for your kind donations to our winter coat drive.
Your coats, jackets and fleeces are on their way to Calling London to keep vulnerable Londoners warm this winter.
