The 2022 Winter Warmth campaign will be run in the week commencing Monday 14th November, a time when many rough sleepers are starting to feel the effects of winter biting in. It is estimated that a minimum of 7000 people will sleep rough during the winter months.
There is always an acute shortage of warm clothing & personal products for those experiencing homelessness and the rigours of an English winter. This year we are working with agents and suppliers to target areas/communities relevant to where they operate and distribute to local hostels and shelters.
Are you able to help?
By collecting warm clothes and donating to a homeless charity, shelter or hotel in your area who will be thrilled to receive your kind donations – any donations you make will really help to make a big difference. Two agents participating in the winter warmth campaign again this year are Drivers and Norris and Paramount both key drivers of community and charitable causes in their local areas.
Greg Mangham, Founder & CEO of Only a Pavement Away comments: “We are thrilled to be running the Only a Pavement Away National Winter Warmth campaign again this year, it means so much to have the support of Agents Giving and the property industry to help get behind this and open up new avenues to support the work we do helping vulnerable people on the streets.”
David Newnes, Chairman of Agents Giving comments: “Agents Giving are proud to be supporting the Winter Warmth Campaign with Only a Pavement Away and we urge you all to have a dig around in your cupboards for not only coats but warm items of clothing that you longer use or need”.
