An appeal has been launched by Rotary Stevenage Grange for warm coats to be donated to help those in need this winter.

A spokesperson for the rotary club explained: "We are collecting and re-homing good condition warm winter garments.

"Coats needs to be clean with all zips and buttons complete and working.

"So, if you have a warm coat, waterproof, gilet or fleece for adults or children, please drop it off either at our Stevenage Indoor Market stall or at Holy Trinity Church in the Old Town.

"We'll sort them and send them to local charities that work with those in need this winter."

The appeal is running until December 3.
