MANCHESTER Arndale is offering 20 per cent off new coats at selected stores, in exchange for old coats that are still in good nick.
Customers will be given a 20 per cent off voucher to spend on a new coat at Luke, Evans, Burton, Wallis in BHS, Warehouse, Bank, Oasis, Jack and Jones and Vero Moda.
Actress Tina O’Brien launched the Little Coat Big Coat appeal for local children’s charity Wood Street Mission last week. The appeal aims to help those families affected most by poverty in Greater Manchester by collecting unwanted, good quality coats so they stay warm this winter.
Shoppers are being urged to look in their wardrobes and find unwanted children’s and young adults’ coats, which are still in perfect condition and could be given a new lease of life by those in need. In return for their pre-loved coat, customers will be given a 20 per cent off voucher to spend on a new coat at Luke, Evans, Burton, Wallis in BHS, Warehouse, Bank, Oasis, Jack and Jones and Vero Moda.
Customers simply need to take their good quality coats to Halle Square between 20-22 September and drop them off in return for a discount voucher. Volunteers from Wood Street Mission will be helping collect the much-needed coats at the three-day appeal.
Based in the heart of Manchester, Wood Street Mission has been helping families hit by poverty in our area for over 140 years by donating clothing to children whose parents simply can’t afford to buy anything to wear.
Tina O’Brien said: “I feel really honoured to be involved with Wood Street Mission. The charity helps families at a grassroots level and those in desperate need in the Manchester and Salford areas. I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time at the charity this year to see firsthand the impact my donations can really have and I would urge anyone to support the appeal.”
