Manchester-based charity ‘Human Appeal’ have had great success with their new campaign, ‘Wrap Up Manchester’.
The idea of the campaign was to collect as many warm clothes and coats as possible. Once collected, the clothes would be distributed to those in need of them in the year’s coldest months.
Members of the local community came together and donated over 1,000 items. These include over 700 coats and 300 jumpers, scarves, blankets and sleeping bags. The campaign incredibly helped more than 700 homeless and vulnerable people.
Othman Moqbel, Human Appeal’s CEO has expressed his gratitude towards donators:
“Human Appeal are so thankful for everyone who donated a coat, we have exceeded our target.
The generosity show is truly touching and there will be over 700 souls on the streets of Greater Manchester warmed by your donation”.
Greater Manchester’s top Liberal Democrats John Leech and Jane Brophy have done their bit for the campaign. They visited Human Appeal’s centres to support the appeal, donate clothing and raise the campaign’s profile.
Manchester Withington’s former MP of ten years, John Leech, has spoken fondly of Human Appeal:
“The work Human Appeal does both here in Manchester and across the country is of serious significance and importance to so many people’s lives”.
It’s fantastic to see that people are supporting local charities to help them deliver aid to people in need.
