After a hugely successful WrapUp in 2019 and repeating in 2020 becoming impossible to undertake due to the pandemic, WrapUp Central Lancashire is back in 2021!!
This years collection dates are for the 3 weeks from the 18th of October 2021 until the 8th of November 2021.
Our aim is once again to provide the needy throughout Lancashire with warm, fully serviceable winter coats. The less fortunate of the area who were helped in 2019 included; the homeless, families living in refuges, asylum seekers and those whose circumstances have led to them being unable to provide themselves with the basics many of us take for granted and have to choose daily between food or clothing or heating. Helping those in need during the cold winter months in just one aspect is what WrapUp Central Lancashire will do.
As in 2019 this year will see Preston North End providing fantastic support through a collection box in the club shop and annoucements at home games. Some organisations are taking collection boxes for their large numbers of staff only whilst several of the big supermarkets will have public collection boxes.
We must give a huge thank you to Badger Office Supplies who have agreed to provide an area within their warehouse for the sorting & storage of the coats during and slightly after the collection period.
WrapUp Central Lancashire is a fantastic example of Rotary in the area collaborating not just with other Rotarians but with industry and the people of the area who supported WrapUp so well in 2019 and we would anticipate so doing again in 2021.
We need your help through the donation of those warm seviceable winter coats.
WrapUp is Rotary in Central Lancashire working in the community for the improvement of the community.
