Cadets' coats for warm rail

Temperatures are staying down and when it's not chilly it's wet. Some people do not have the funds to properly equip themselves or their families for what the winter weather may throw at them.

So Boston Police Cadets have been running their own campaign to collect coats and warm winter clothing for "The Warm Rail" at Boston Stump.

Anyone who needs something from the rail can help themselves.

The cadets have just delivered their second load of coats and will carry on collecting.

They are also collecting old ties. The cadets will be turning these into personal belongings envelopes as an alternative to the impersonal paper envelopes used to return or keep safe the personal belongings of people in hospital
