Adactus Housing Association in Leigh donate to Big Coat Collection
10:50am Friday 8th February 2013 in News
WINTER warmth for homeless people has been provided by staff at a Leigh housing organisation who donated 100 coats.
Employees at Adactus Housing Association rallied to a call to support the Big Coat Collection, organised by Peter Woods, senior programme co-ordinator.
The coats were collected on behalf of the Mustard Tree charity. Peter said: “The uniqueness of this charity drive was that they were not looking for a new coat, or even money towards a new coat, simply a coat that you no longer use.”
Mark Foster, from Adactus, added: “Pete’s actions in asking staff to bring in a coat that has been hanging on the back of the door, or waiting for a fashion revival in the wardrobe, will play a big part in helping the homeless and the destitute.”
