Coat to spare? Time to share.

Posted on:   Posted by:

The UK’s largest self-storage company is calling on Cardiff residents to donate good quality, unwanted coats to Hands On London’s ‘Wrap Up Cardiff’ campaign by dropping them off at the Cardiff, Newport Road branch of Safestore. The campaign will be running from the 1st to 30th November.

This winter will mark the 8th year of the UK’s largest self-storage company’s support for the Wrap Up campaign which began in London and to date has collected over 137,000 coats since its launch in 2011. Safestore will also provide storage space at several of its stores to facilitate the sorting, storage and distribution of thousands of coats to over 100 charities, homeless shelters, vulnerable women and children centres, elderly people in need and refugees.

Latest statistics show that there are currently 345 rough sleepers in Wales*.

Shahid Kadodia, Digital & Marketing Director at Safestore comments:

“With so many people in need in the Cardiff area, sadly some of the most vulnerable people will not have the luxury of wearing a coat this winter. With this figure only set to rise, we are very passionate about supporting ‘Wrap Up Cardiff’ as they are working so hard to provide comfort and care for those in need. We’re proud to have supported this campaign over the years and we hope to donate even more coats this winter.”

Follow the campaign on Twitter today, and help make the winter a little less bitter for those in need.
