A PROJECT which provides free coats and jackets for people in Moray over the winter has restarted and expanded.
Warm4Winter hopes to reach even more individuals and families this year as the cost-of-living crisis continues to bite.
Elgin Rotarians Anne Sim and Jackie Andrews are behind the effort and thanks to a Moray Local Action Fund grant they have been able to extend its reach.
In a joint statement, they said: "We have free good-as-new coats and jackets for adults and children in various locations throughout Moray.
"Partnership working with Moray School Bank helps us have permanent rails in St Giles Centre for which we are extremely grateful."
Coats and jackets are at Elgin Town Hall from 10am to 12noon on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday and at Moray School Bank Pop In at St Giles Centre 10am to 4pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
There is a permanent rail at Lhanbryde Community Centre which is open Tuesdays from 10am to 2pm plus Lossie 2-3 Group Soup & Sweet from 12noon to 2pm every Thursday.
The Big Blue Pantry Bus has items for anyone at all their stops.
They added: "We would be delighted to receive donations at any of these locations but, please remember, we are very fussy and only accept good-as-new items. We are currently quite short of children’s jackets or coats."
Also, anyone wishing to volunteer, even one hour per week, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
