Wrap Up South Cumbria , starts today, 21st October
We are collecting your old, unwanted coats and giving them to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence; visit www.wrapupcumbria.co.uk and www.facebook.com/pg/WrapUpCumbriaSouth.
The first ever Wrap Up South Cumbria campaign has been launched by local Rotary clubs and we are doing our bit.
People will be able to drop off coats they no longer need at nearly 40 collection sites spread around Kendal, Grange-over-Sands, Ulverston, Milnthorpe, Barrow-in-Furness and Millom. Our collection points are Grange Health Centre, Kents Bank Road, Victoria Hall on Main Street and Cartmel Priory
Coats can be dropped off between Monday, October 21 and Saturday, November 9.
They will be collected by Rotary volunteers, who will then sort them and redistribute them free of charge to people such as the homeless, refugees and those living in poverty, by the end of November. No coats will be sold.
Charities and community organisations will give out the winter garments, ensuring needy recipients find out about other support available
