Alty backs clothing for Manchester's homeless appeal

Email

We are appealing to our generous supporters to back stallholders at Altrincham Market in their campaign to collect coats and jackets to donate to Manchester’s growing homeless community by bringing donations to our upcoming FA Trophy match at The J.Davidson this Saturday 24th November against Bradford (Park Avenue).

Don Grant, Lesley Britton, Hannah Burns and Jacqui Evans are asking for donations of any spare warm clothing so that they can be passed on to Homeless Project Manchester.

There are estimated to be 500 long-term rough sleepers in Greater Manchester, with over 3,000 people homeless when taking into account those in temporary accommodation, couch-surfing, or in bed and breakfasts.

As well as coats and jackets you can also donate clean sleeping bags, blankets, warm winter clothes, thermal underwear, socks, vests, socks, boots, hold-all bags, and other cold-weather items.

All donations will be distributed to those who need them across Greater Manchester by the volunteer team at Homeless Project Manchester.
