Rotarians in Cumbria collected your old, unwanted coats and gave them to charities that support the homeless, refugees, children living in poverty and people fleeing domestic violence (to name a few).
Any size, style, colour of men’s, women’s and children’s coats was greatly appreciated.
All donations were then be sorted and delivered to our nominated charity partners [listed below], for distribution to those in need just in time for winter.
A total of 34 collection points were available in North Cumbria and a total of 2793 items – mostly coats - were generously donated. People from Penrith, Appleby and the surrounding areas gave overwhelming support to this worthwhile cause and these are just some of the charities/people in our area, who received much needed items to wrap up and keep warm this winter:
Allerdale Homeless, Pause, Children’s services, Fareshare, Citizens advice, Foodbank, Calderwood House, WOW ( women out west), Howgill, Allerdale housing, West House, Cumbria youth alliance, Youth offending, Freedom project, Healthy hopes, Foyer Whitehaven, Foyer Penrith, Night safe Carlisle, Action of work, Moorclose children’s centre, Individuals who collected, Richmond fellowship, Human kind, Freedom project, Barnardo’s, Sure start.
