Homeless Pembrokeshire has extended a big thank you to all the group members who donated lots of good-quality coats in excellent condition over the past few weeks.

The charity, which provides advice and support to people who are homeless or in crisis,is grateful for the continued support and donations, without which it wouldn’t be able to keep the coat rails stocked.

Carol Thomas, who manages the Coat Rail Project for the charity, told us: “It’s a simple idea. If you have a need of a coat – whether you’re homeless or just can’t afford a good winter coat – you’re free to take one.”

“We are now accepting donations of men’s, women’s and children’s coats for all our rails. If anyone would like to donate to us please get in touch with me via Facebook. All we ask is that any coats donated have been cleaned/washed and are in good condition with all zips/fasteners in good working order.”

Currently the coat rails are available at:

The Precinct, Charles Street, Milford Haven

The Coffee Cave, High Street, Haverfordwest

NB The Library at Pembroke Dock was still not accessible to the public as of 2 February.
