Generous people of Leeds - we need your pre-loved coats, hats, scarves and paired gloves.
WHEN you think of winter, what do you envisage? Noisy family gatherings, steaming hot chocolates and comical snowball fights?
For countless people across Leeds, their main concern this winter will be how to keep themselves and their children warm without a decent coat.
In fact, almost a quarter of under 16s in Leeds are living in poverty and an overwhelming 75 per cent of these live in working households, according to Zero Waste Leeds.
Now in its second year, the Leeds Winter Coat Appeal aims to collect and distribute more than 2,000 good quality coats, hats, scarves and paired gloves (for free) for the needy.
Blueberry has joined forces with Zero Waste Leeds to back this year’s worthwhile campaign. But we need your support to smash this year’s target and make sure no one goes cold this winter.
