Dorchester winter 'Coat Bank' for families in need

The Dorchester Family Partnership Zone has set up the coat bank ahead of the colder weather.

If your child's outgrown their winter coat you can donate it at Poundbury Children's Centre.

A spokesperson for the DFPZ said: 

"We want to make sure every child keeps warm this winter.

"Please have a rummage around for any winter coats you may have lying around that no longer fit or are not used. They need to have lots of life left in them and aged between 4-12 years."
