Partnering Wrap Up

We are proud to support Wrap Up with our sister brand, CollectPlus, for the fifth year running.

Our partnership with Wrap Up

Every winter, Wrap Up volunteers collect coats from the public to keep people at risk warmer and safer. The CollectPlus network has opened the charity up to be a nationwide affair with over 7,000 CollectPlus Points across the UK that the public can donate from.

There are an estimated 320,000 homeless people in the UK, and this figure does not reflect the hidden homeless, which are often children and families in temporary unsuitable housing. With an estimated 726 homeless people dying in England and Wales last year, any support we can give as a community to those in need makes a huge difference.

Men experience the highest rates of homelessness in the UK, so each year, the demand for men’s coats is high. There has also been a specific request for all-in-one snowsuits for young children and infants too.

Our sister brand, CollectPlus, is supporting Wrap Up London, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and Bath this year and is aiming to receive over 2,000 donations. Supporters can download a label from the CollectPlus site, choosing the city they’d like to donate to, attach it to a parcel which can contain up to 10kg worth of coats, and drop it at their nearest location. Most of the CollectPlus Points are open early ‘til late which makes donating even easier.

Based on our video which documents the life cycle of a coat, we’d love to hear your ‘Coat Tales’ too. Simply tag us on Twitter @CollectPlus with #CoatTales and share your story.

 

“The collaboration with CollectPlus has been amazing for the campaign. Since the very first year, people have asked how they can donate a warm coat for those that need them. Often, these people cannot reach one of our collection points, so have struggled to participate. CollectPlus approached us and offered to help. Through their established network of 7,000 stores, people have been able to donate a warm coat from wherever they live. With the support of CollectPlus, the campaign has become truly accessible.”
