A politician has backed an estate agent’s efforts to help homeless and other vulnerable people get through the chilly winter months by giving away one of her coats.
Cllr Tulip Siddiq, Camden’s cabinet member for culture and Labour’s candidate for the Hampstead and Kilburn parliamentary seat, visited the West Hampstead estate agent Paramount Properties, in West End Lane, last Friday to hand in one of her old jackets.
The firm is once again acting as a drop-off point for the Wrap up London campaign, which seeks donations of unwanted coats for the benefit of those in need.
The campaign is hoping to collect 10,000 garments to give to more than 100 charities, including homeless shelters, women’s refuges, youth centres and care homes.
Cllr Siddiq said: “I’m supporting the Wrap Up London campaign because it’s a simple and important initiative to keep vulnerable people warm this winter.”
