In the years since, the campaign has grown to include the help and cooperation of dozens of local businesses which, along with the unprecedented generosity of the general public, has transformed the humble idea into an important annual event.
Now organised by two of the five founding members and longtime Crisis Christmas volunteers Andy Brown and Claire Paczko, the appeal has now garnered many thousands of unwanted winter clothing since its inception, and every year dozens of businesses and organisations from across the North East act as donation stations.
