Give an old coat – keep someone warm this winter
Want a nice warm feeling? Give someone your coat.
Drop an old coat off in Chiswick from now until 27 November, and it will keep someone warm this winter. And you get that nice warm feeling that comes from sharing a bit of Christmas spirit this winter. It's a win win situation!
Most of us have an old coat or two knocking about in the cupboard. One of the local Estate Agents, Chestertons, is collecting them for charity London Calling. They will be taken and passed on to families and individuals.
Children's, men's and women's are all wanted. I'm going to give Chiswick Boy's old ski jacket that I've been keeping as a spare. And I have a couple of jackets in my wardrobe that I don't wear and should pass on.
I asked Nikki Mention-Dennis, Associate Director of Chestertons Chiswick branch, what she'd like to say to my readers, and she said this:
“We had a wonderful response last year, and it really was great to see the generous residents in the Chiswick community get involved and help us collect winter coats for those in need during the colder months.
We are hoping to have an even better response this year, so please rummage through your wardrobes. If you have winter coats you just don't need / like/ want anymore?
Any puffa jackets that the children have outgrown, but are still in good shape? Please donate them! We have a collection box placed in our Chiswick office on the High Road. One of our friendly team would be more than happy to welcome you.”
Drop off at Chestertons, 155 Chiswick High Rd, 9am-6pm.
