An opticians in Hillsborough is urging members of the public to donate unwanted winter coats to help those in need.

Local residents can take coats that are no longer needed into the Specsavers store on Middlewood Road. They will then be donated to local good causes including the Salvation Army and women’s refuges in South Yorkshire.

Store director Lorna Armitage says: ‘I have previously held this coat collection at Specsavers in Mexborough and in Sheffield, and one year the public donated more than 2,000 coats. It would be amazing to break that record this year!

‘We can all feel the nights getting colder as winter draws in and a coat that hangs unworn in a cupboard could make a huge difference to someone in need over the coming months.’

Coats and other items of warm clothing such as hats, scarves and jumpers can be taken to Hillsborough Specsavers during their usual opening hours seven days a week.
