We operate in a small old market town and are very community minded with a lot support from local people who support whatever projects we run. We are an old club but trying to keep up with the changes and this year have increased our membership.
Wrap Up is a campaign run by local Rotary Clubs, in partnership with the registered charity Hands On London.
Thick warm winter coats donated to Wrap Up are collected by volunteers and each garment is inspected to ensure it is clean and in a good condition to be given away.
Our motto of “Is this coat good enough for you to wear” ensures that only good quality coats are distributed to the charitable organisations.
The collected coats are distributed via homeless shelters, refugee centres, organisations supporting the elderly, women’s refuges, children’s centres and other charities helping people in crisis.
We do not give coats direct to families, because we firmly believe that the charitable organisations can identify support and resources to benefit those in need or signpost them to organisations that could help, thereby creating a lasting relationship between those in need and the organisation that could transform their lives.
We are wrapping up safely too by working hard to make sure everything about Wrap Up is completely COVID-19 safe.
So, if you have a thick warm winter coat you no longer need, please donate it to our Wrap Up campaign.
