Extra readers are being invited to get involved in the last phase of a project which helps provide warm coats for the homeless.

Wrap up Glasgow has been accepting coats for those living in the streets after identical schemes provided much needed garments to the homeless in London and Manchester.

Volunteers are accepting the last donations of coats in a drive that will end on Friday, November 24 at Safestore in the South Side which is located at 588 Lawmoor Street, Dixon Blazes, Glasgow G5 0TY.

Although the depot will close at 6pm daily it is being stressed that is is open on Thursday until 8pm - and all donations will be gratefully accepted.

Safestore’s Digital Marketing Officer Shahid Kadodia said: “Good quality coats will make a huge difference to someone who is facing the elements this winter.”
