Chestertons transforms offices for launch of 2018 winter coat campaign

Chestertons has transformed areas of its 33 London offices as it launches its latest winter coat collection.

The agent’s annual campaign, run with charity Calling London, collects winter coats that are then donated to those who are sleeping rough or are unable to afford one.

A record 4,500 coats were collected last year, with 2,000 coming from Chestertons.

The campaign will run until November 30.

All donations will then be bagged, sorted and distributed before Christmas to more than 40 charities and shelters across the capital to help vulnerable people such as the homeless, the elderly, refugees and children.

Giles Milner, marketing director and chairman of Chestertons Charity Champions, said: “We have seen first-hand the sheer scale of the rough sleeping problem here in London, and with Britain forecast for its coldest winter for eight years, our quest to keep vulnerable Londoners warm is more important than ever.

“As always, our aim is to reach out to as many people as possible by promoting the campaign in the local community and engaging with more individuals, businesses and schools in the areas in which we operate.”
