Charity shops in appeal for spare winter warmers.
Three of the Teesside Hospice charity shops in Middlesbrough had to close because of the weather including the one on Linthorpe Road which had to shut early for the first time because stock had ran out and there was nothing to sort for days.
She added: "We have to close shops because of the weather and cannot expect people to come in and without volunteers being able to come in and help out we can't open.
"There has been a good amount of winter clothes selling at this time of year although the flow of stock is getting better so hopefully stock levels will be back to normal soon."
Barnardo's added: "We are appealing for anyone who is likely to get a new winter coat or jumpers for Christmas, to consider donating their good quality unwanted or old winter clothes to their nearest store.
"Or if anyone is thinking of hitting the sales to buy a new winter coat, please donate their old one to us."
