100s of coats and hats warm homeless in Norwich 

Hundreds of coats and hats have been donated to charity to ensure that homeless people in Norwich are a bit warmer this winter.

Norwich City of Sanctuary partnered with Norwich Arts Centre to encourage people to bring their unwanted men’s coats to the St Benedict’s Street venue on Saturday, November 17.


The charity, which aims to welcome refugees and asylum seekers to Norwich, as well as those without a home, had been hoping to collect 100 coats as part of its Coats On The Railings campaign. 


But local people smashed the target by hanging up more than 150 coats on the railings outside St Swithin’s Church, which now houses the Norwich Arts Centre, as well as 80 woolly hats.


Claire Wood, chair of Norwich City of Sanctuary, told the Evening News she was “bowled over” by support for the campaign: “The response was phenomenal, we are very grateful and have already distributed them to more than 150 people who really need them in the sub-zero temperatures we’ve had this winter.


“Emmanuel Church in Bungay also donated 80 hand-knitted woolly hats which were a welcome addition. 


“Thank you to all involved, especially Norwich Arts Centre for their continued support as a Theatre of Sanctuary with us.”
