The company I work for has kindly agreed to let me use a storage room for free to collect coats for wrap up London. Its a Charity that collect gently used coats for people that are especially vulnerable during the winter.
- Homelessness in London has risen 36% year on year.
- 14% of children in poverty have to do without a warm coat in winter (Save the Children report 2012)
- Fuel poverty affects almost a fifth of London households and contributed to 2,500 winter deaths last year.
