Make space in your wardrobe and donate those unwanted puffa jackets and winter coats! We love our community so why not help this great cause?
An entirely voluntary charity, Calling London collects coats from the public, then works with charitable groups right across London to distribute them to Londoners who’d otherwise go without something warm to wear.
Nothing is sold, just handed out.
They are asking for winter coats and puffas of all sizes — from babies’ to adult sizes, as long as they are in good, clean condition. Ski jackets, duffels, down jackets — the warmer, the better.
Since 2011 they have donated 12,000 coats to over 50 charities.
