Winter Coat Collection
Your donations are needed!
For the 9th year, Chestertons is supporting Calling London’s Winter Coat Drive. All of their London branches will become donation points from the 21st October – 22nd November.
The impact of the cost of living crisis means the demand for winter coats is likely to be higher than ever, with many more families facing financial difficulties – so your kind donations are needed now more than ever.
Since partnering with Calling London in 2014, Chestertons has collected more and more coats every year, starting with 200 in their first year and growing to an incredible 3500 in 2021. This winter they are hoping to collect even more coats as the demand is so much higher.
From Friday 21st October until Tuesday 22nd November you can drop your donations off at any London branch.
Who is Calling London?
Established in 2010 by Frances Manthos, Calling London collects winter coats and jackets and then distributes them to over 30 charitable organisations – helping the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, those living in poverty, the elderly, refugees and children.
Where can I drop off my donations?
Please drop your donations off at any of Chestertons London branch by Tuesday 22nd November. You can find all of theirLondon addresses here.
What winter clothing items are needed?
- Coats of all styles
- Ski jackets
Do you accept other winter clothes?
No, unfortunately, we can only accept warm winter coats and jackets as detailed above.
I don’t have a coat to donate, is there another way I can help?
Yes – there are many ways you can support the coat drive. Take a look below:
- Spread the word! Please share the message across your social media, speak to your friends and family about it, and message your contacts on WhatsApp.
- Consider collecting coats: if your place of work, child’s school or college, or local church can run a collection, you are welcome to then drop these donations off at any Chestertons branch.
