CYC members have been concerned about the number of people sleeping on the streets in Cardiff this winter and as a result they developed social action called Coats to Go in the city centre.
The idea is simple take one coat rail and donated coats from the Education Department and leave it where people are able to access it on a daily basis. Anyone in need of a free winter coat can take one and if you would like to donate a coat leave one on the rail.
Project lead and CYC Chairperson Xinyu Ye (17) said ‘Social media played an important part in sharing this project with over 6,000 people on Twitter and our Facebook reach was over 60,000! This has meant that in the projects first two week 28 coats are now in the hands of people that need them. Thanks everyone’
The coat rail in situated in Barrack Lane, just behind Grassroots CF10 2GG, 10.00am – 4.00pm.
