Former boxer Tommy Coyle has handed out more than a thousand PE kits and school uniforms to families in Hull, amid concerns that costs of uniforms are continuing to rise.
Some families in Hull have told ITV News Calendar that they are having to decide between buying expensive uniforms or putting food on the table.
Dozens of people queued outside the Tommy Coyle Academy on Friday, as one of the city's favourite sons decided to give back.
Also in Hull, more than 800 families have been helped by the RE:UNIFORM campaign which has been redistributing donated school clothing.
The campaign was set up by Emma Hardy MP (Hull West and Hessle).
