We Empower Children with Warmth, Dignity, and Hope

A Heartfelt Mission

Coats4Kids is more than just a charitable initiative; it’s a heartfelt mission that seeks to make a profound difference in the lives of impoverished children across the United Kingdom. Our story began in 2021 as a passionate project of the Rotary E-Club of District 1070. We were driven by a simple yet powerful idea‚Ķ

Every child deserves the warmth and comfort of a winter coat

Establishing Ourselves

In early 2023, we took a significant step forward, establishing ourselves as an independent Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Charity #1204093) registered with the Charity Commission. This transition allowed us to pursue better our unwavering commitment to ensuring no child faces the harsh winter cold without the protection of a cosy coat.

Extending A Helping Hand To Those In need

At Coats4Kids, our dedicated team of Trustees is comprised entirely of Rotarians who share a common goal – to extend a helping hand to those in need. We proudly adhere to the high standards and ethics upheld by the Rotary organisation, ensuring that every aspect of our mission is grounded in integrity and compassion.

Our Mission To A Million

Our mission is clear: to provide over 1,000,000 children, living in poverty within the UK with the warmth and security of a brand-new winter coat. But we can’t do it alone. We invite you to join us, to support our cause, and to partner with us in making a meaningful difference in the lives of these deserving children.
