Chestertons Winter Coat Drive 2023 13 Oct 2023
All London branches will become donation points
For the 10th consecutive year, Chestertons is proud to support charity Calling London in a mission to keep London’s homeless and most vulnerable warm throughout the winter.
From the 23rd October until 20th November, all of their London branches will become donation points for members of the public to drop off warm winter coats and jackets. Local schools, businesses and community groups are encouraged to get involved, and Chestertons employees also run their own collections from family, friends and neighbours.
Conducting some local collections
Please drop your donations off at any of our London branches by Monday 20th November 2023. You can find all of our London addresses here.
If you don’t live or work near one of the Chestertons branches, some of the staff are conducting local collections in Bromley, Leicestershire, Kent and other areas – email Chestertons for more information.
These winter clothing items are needed? Coats of all styles – Ski jackets – Gilets – Fleeces
Who is Calling London
Established in 2010 by Frances Manthos, Calling London collects winter coats and jackets and then distributes them to over 30 charitable organisations – helping the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, those living in poverty, the elderly, refugees and children.
Consider collecting coats to drop off to us: if your place of work, child’s school or college, or local church can run a collection, you are welcome to then drop these donations off at any Chestertons branch for them to be distributed to local charities.
Spread the word! Please share the message across your social media, speak to your friends and family about it, and message your contacts on WhatsApp.
If you would like to get involved and support this great cause, please email Marketing@Chestertons.co.uk or visit your local Chestertons branch.
