The National League club are calling on fans to donate their coats with donations being accepted at the SCORE Centre between Saturday and Tuesday

Leyton Orient have thrown their weight behind an annual campaign called ‘Wrap Up London’ by holding a coat collection between Saturday morning until Tuesday night.

The O’s are urging supporters who have coats they no longer use to donate them to the SCORE Centre in Oliver Road, which is opposite the club shop at Brisbane Road.

Donations will be collected from Saturday morning where Dover Athletic will visit Orient in the National League and up until Tuesday night when Chester make the trip to east London.

‘Wrap Up London’ accepts men’s, women’s and kids’ coats, but in 2017 there is an emphasis on the need for men’s coats, as each year there is a high demand for these coats.

With International Men’s Day on Sunday, the club want to make sure everyone who needs a coat gets one!

Now in its seventh year, ‘Wrap Up London’ sees Londoners looking after their own by donating spare coats and jackets to those in the capital who struggle to keep warm in the winter months.

Coats are distributed via homeless shelters, refugee centres, organisations supporting the elderly, women’s refuges, children’s centres and other charities helping people in crisis.

A club statement read: “Maybe you’ve been meaning to clear out the wardrobe, or under your bed, or wherever it is you keep your spare coats.

“Maybe you’re just looking for an excuse to buy that new coat you saw in the shop. Whatever your reasons, please bring your unwanted coats between Saturday 18 and Tuesday 21 November to the SCORE centre. Your generosity will be very much appreciated.”

Oaks Park High School Year 8 student Rhia Gondhia likes to make people feel welcome.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
