Winter warmer kids’ coats appeal

Following the huge success of Thirteen’s tenancy support services’ school uniform campaign in the summer, the team are now appealing for pre-loved children’s winter coats.

We are looking for any winter coats suitable for children of primary school age, in any size for aged 4 up to an extra small or small adult size.

Angela Corner, senior tenancy support service manager for Thirteen said: “We know children’s coats are costly items. Buying one for school can be expensive enough without buying a second for playing out.

“Rather than throwing away coats that your children have outgrown, we would like staff and customers to donate them, as long as they are clean and in good condition, so that we can send them on to local people.”

If you can help, there will be collection points at Thirteen’s offices at Northshore in Stockton, Rivers House in Middlesbrough and Titan House in Hartlepool from Monday 28 October to Friday 8 November. Please do bring any unwanted winter coats to help children who really need them.  

The coats will then be distributed across the region through youth service providers and primary schools in the following weeks.

Thank you in advance for your kind support!
