The days are shorter, nights longer and the temperature has dropped considerably. Whilst we are wrapped up in our on-trend teddy bear coats, sipping hot chocolate or mulled wine or even horizontal on a sofa under a blanket, there are thousands who will be sleeping on the streets this Christmas.
Duke of York Square have long supported Glass Door; in the seventh annual sleep out this year raising £220,000, who run the largest emergency winter shelter network with night shelters across Kensington & Chelsea. This winter, we are urging you to support this important charity, on a quest to raise £60,000, and give the gift of warmth this Christmas.
Shopping in Partridges? Donate jars of instant hot chocolate, coffee and vegetable soup to the Glass Door collection point – found next to the tills – which will go to those receiving much needed support at this poignant time of year.
We would also love to encourage you to participate in their #OpenADoor campaign – picturing the beautiful festive doors of Chelsea this Christmas and reminding you to think about those sleeping on the street. Share your festive front doors, tag @glassdoorlondon and include the hashtags #OpenADoor and #GlassdoorChristmas to spread their message.

Our shops have reopened their doors and many of our restaurants’ terraces are open for alfresco dining in the spring sunshine. We want to reassure you that your safety remains paramount, measures are in place to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
