Hundreds of coats and jumpers have been handed to homeless and vulnerable people in Middlesbrough. The clothes will keep them warm during the cold winter.
It is part of an annual event to help the less fortunate and to raise awareness of how hard Christmas can be for some people.

Prince William has been visiting the homeless charity Centrepoint while on a visit to Sunderland.
The Duke of Cambridge, who is a patron of the charity, was shown their new accommodation centre in the city.
A charity says up to twenty thousand young people in the North East could be made homeless, under government proposals to cut housing benefit.
The Prime Minister has said that rather than claiming the money, people under twenty five should move back in with their parents, but the homeless charity Crisis says that won't be an option for many of them.

The contract was given to Hope North East by national charity Crisis for their new Hope 4 A Home project.
The charity said the money will help single non-priority homeless people find new homes and independence.
A Middlesbrough Council spokesperson said such homeless people placed "a high demand" on social housing teams, and the money will help the situation.
Crisis has allocated £3m in total, provided by the Department of Communities and Local Government.
The project is one of over 70 new local projects across England, adding to an existing 49 that have already helped more than 1,000 homeless people into a home.
Martin Gill, the Operations Manager at Centrepoint says the centre is a safe place for homeless young people in Sunderland.
