Clapton CFC winter coat collection at the Cricklewood Wanderers game

With winter beginning to bite, CCFC are asking fans to donate old coats as part of the Wrap Up London campaign.

There will be a drop off point at The Stray Dog on Saturday for the men’s game against Cricklewood Wanderers. Unfortunately we can’t collect on the Sunday due to the charity’s deadline.

Coats and jackets of all sizes are gratefully received, from puffer to parka and duffle to down. However, please don’t bring duvets, sleeping bags or other clothes as they can’t be accepted.

Once collected, the coats are sorted and distributed to other charities who make sure they reach those who need them — the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence.

Dig out any unwanted coats this weekend ready for the collection. It’s chuffing freezing.

Reminder that we collect every home game for our charity partners, The Magpie Project, so please give generously to both.

Magpie Project support mums and young children who live in temporary and emergency accommodation.

If you have any of these to spare, please bring them to our collection point at the entrance:

● Toothpaste ● Toothbrushes ● Shower gel ● Shampoo ● Soap ● Deodorant ● Bags of rice ● Bags of pasta ● Breakfast cereals ● Washing powder
