Newbury Building Society has launched its Winter Wrap-Up Appeal to encourage employees, customers and the public to donate new or clean used winter clothing to help people in need stay warm this winter.  

Unwanted coats, scarves, gloves and hats can be donated along with new pairs of socks.

Donations can be made to the society’s 10 branches as well as its head office.

After the appeal, representatives from branches and head office will take the donated items to local charities in January.

Emma Simms, marketing and communications manager at Newbury Building Society said: “A winter hat, a coat and a pair of socks may seem like a small gesture, but it can make a huge difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.

“As a society who holds the community at its heart, we want to help local charities support those enduring cold nights on the streets, living in a shelter or who can’t afford to pay for their heating.

“We urge local people to clear out their wardrobes, and we welcome any unwanted winter warmers; every item donated will go to someone who really needs it.”
