Clear out your cupboards for the Wrap Up London campaign
Putney Rotary is collecting coats until 28 November for the Wrap Up London campaign.
Use your home as a drop off point or ask your church/community/school hall for space. Putney Rotary will collect from you.
Ask friends, family and colleagues - collect in your home, workplace, local school, sports centre, place of worship, library etc. Adult, children's, baby coats are all need but no fur coats! They need to be good quality, clean pre-loved coats.
Please use reusable bags rather than single use black bin bags - they will be distributed to food banks afterwards.
There are two sorting stations open from 10 November to mid-December.
If you have your own vehicle, they will cover any costs incurred on journeys or set you up on their Zipcar account.
The goal is to collect 32,000 coats from Rotary clubs across London.
Contact Lu on 07789 510297 or firstname.lastname@example.org for sacks or more information.
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 email@example.com 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.
