An Angus clothes bank was running a special project to help vulnerable families get through the cold weather.

The Lighthouse Kids Clothes Bank, run by volunteers from Arbroath Town Mission, was giving “winter essentials packs” to those who are referred to its centre at 95 Grant Road in Arbroath from 10am-8pm yesterday.

Donations for the packs were provided by local ska group the Decleration Band and Peter Stirling Fruit Farms.

Morven Webster, Lighthouse Kids co-ordinator, said: “We know that the months after Christmas can be a real struggle for some, and a little help at this time can make a real difference.”
