We are incredibly grateful for the continued help from our business supporters, other like-minded organisations and our incredible network of hard-working volunteers – all of whom have been integral in making our seventh consecutive Winter Campaign possible.

The Pass It On team has carefully curated care packages filled with items which can provide practical support to those sleeping rough during the colder months, all packaged into a rucksack and ready to be donated. The items within the care packages range from food and drink items, hygiene products and clothing items such as hats, gloves, thermals and underwear.
As a charity, we believe in working alongside like-minded organisations and combining our resources to deliver a more comprehensive and effective service to those most in need. So as part of our campaign, our team will also be making additional donations of our care packages to the following charities:
• KickStart, Enfield
• Gravesend Hub
• Helping Hands, Leamington
• Maggs, Worcester, Westminster
For anyone wanting to help towards our Winter Campaign or any of our future campaigns, we welcome monetary donations which can also be made by clicking here. 100% of all monetary donations made will be used to help the homeless in the UK.
