Donate your unwanted snow wear today...
The experts on the colder climate and all things snow are giving back this winter, with a campaign to keep the homeless warm. London’s closest real snow, indoor skiing and snowboarding destination, The Snow Centre Hemel Hempstead, are collecting unwanted snow wear and donating it to the homeless in an effort to keep those facing a winter on the streets that bit warmer.
In an ideal world there would be no poverty, homelessness or hunger, but the harsh reality is far from ideal. In London alone, there are many thousands of homeless people forced to sleep rough on the streets of the capital. And when winter is here, the days and nights living on the streets bring harsh weather and freezing cold temperatures. "We wanted to do what we could to help.” Said The Snow Centre’s Managing Director, Ian Brown.
Partnered with the charity, Street Souls, The Snow Centre joined the mission to provide a little comfort and cheer to some of London's homeless — and they’re asking skiers, snowboarders and everyone else to do the same.
From 1st — 28th February 2017, The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead will be collecting unwanted winter clothing to help keep the homeless warm at the end of this winter, and for many more winters to come. Socks, hats, jumpers, gloves, sleeping bags and all kinds of warm clothing are needed — so everyone’s invited to make a donation.
A collection point for donations can be found at The Snow Centre’s reception and all contributions will be distributed via the charity, Street Souls.
