A new initiative has been launched to enable the rural community to respond to the Syrian crisis by helping to save lives in Syria and the surrounding area.

 

CountryCoats2Syria was the brainchild of countryside sportsman Richard Walton, with an aim to engage agricultural and country sports communities to gather their unused coats and donate them to their local collection points.

 

The organisation plans to arrange collection points around the country over the Christmas period for unwanted coats which will then be sorted, bagged and passed on to Syria Relief who will arrange for them to be shipped to Syria and the surrounding region.

 

Mr Walton who is heading up the campaign said: "members of the rural community are noted for their effective winter clothing.

 

"By donating a spare coat to CountryCoats2Syria, you can make a small but significant difference to families who are in great need this winter.

 

"We are delighted by the response we have received so far and are hopeful people will continue to support our collections generously over the coming months."
