The Wrap Up Manchester project is inviting people to donate their used coats so that they can be given to homeless people across the UK.

This is the fifth year that the project has been run by the Manchester-based charity Human Appeal, and last year over 30,000 coats were donated in Manchester, Birmingham, and London.

The charity said that they especially need men's coats this year, but are also accepting women's and children's coats as well.

The coats can be dropped off at Manchester Picadilly today until 11.00 am, or can alternatively be dropped off at a number of designated drop-off points until the 22 November.

Where you can donate:

  • Safestore Stockport Bryant

  • Safestore Manchester Old Trafford

  • Safestore Manchester Central

  • Safestore Altrincham

Alternatively, you can donate with the service CollectPlus.

With over 7,000 CollectPlus Points across the UK, simply download a label for free and drop your donation off at a location near you.

Labels will be available to download from the CollectPlus site from 8 November until 23 November.
