VIDEO: Over 1000 coats donated to Gold Coast’s homeless this winter

At the start of May, Rosies, Neweys Dry Cleaners and 102.9 Hot Tomato issued a call out to locals to dig through their wardrobes, pull out any old coats and donate them to Coats for a Cause.

The initiative, which is now in its third year, helps bring some extra warmth to the Gold Coast’s homeless during winter.

This year, more than 1000 coats were donated by generous locals over the two month period. All donated coats were dry cleaned for free at Neweys before being handed over to Rosies to distribute those in need.


On Wednesday, Rosies headed to Neweys to pick up all of the coats – and boy were there some quirky ones in the mix. Take a look and learn more about the initiative in the video below:
