John Lewis donates warm clothing to thousands

John Lewis is donating nearly 5,000 items of warm clothing to families in need. The clothing will be distributed through local Home-Starts across ten key locations in the UK, where many vulnerable communities have been affected most during the pandemic.

Fuel poverty has become a growing issue for struggling families in recent months. With many people forced to stay at home during lockdown, this has led to an inevitable increase in heating costs, which many simply cannot afford.

John Lewis will donate clothing from its babywear, childrenswear, womenswear and menswear product ranges to help keep families stay warm during the third and coldest lockdown.

The support is part of the John Lewis Partnership’s Give a Little Love campaign which aims to make a lasting difference to some of those hit hardest during the last year.

Pippa Wicks, executive director, John Lewis, said: “This is undeniably one of the most challenging periods of the pandemic so far. As the impact is felt more deeply across society, we know that now is not the time to take our foot off the pedal in supporting families who need immediate and practical support.”

Earlier this month, the John Lewis Partnership provided NHS workers with care packages to keep them refuelled and refreshed as they continue facing extreme pressure caring for patients in UK hospitals.
