A big thank you from us to you! Thank you all the kind people in Brighton & Hove, especially the staff at the train stations.!
Wrap-Up is a coat collection for the homeless and other vulnerable people. We are happy to collect any used, old or unwanted coats that the generous people of Brighton can give us, then distribute them to our charity partners that particularly rely on this service every year. Jim Deans at Sussex Homeless Support will be passing these on to the homeless and families in need, who thank you for your kindness.
A little more about Wrap Up…
Wrap Up shows us the power people have when we come together as a community to help those most in need.
Wrap Up is run every year, in early November, and last years campaign in 2020 was a a scaled down version, because of Covid, but ran with the help of some of our partners, including our star supporters Hove Park School, who filled a van with all their donations.
In 2019, the first ever Wrap Up Brighton and Hove collected 2126 coats and also 820 other items like jumpers, scarves, gloves, which were distributed to local charities. This included Sussex Homeless Support, Clock Tower Sanctuary, Off the Fence, Brighton Unemployed Centre Families Project, Brighton and Hove YMCA, RISE, Heads On Charity, First Base Brighton Housing Trust, Emmaus, Brighton and Hove City Mission, and Brighton Women’s Centre.
