Letter: Not fur Vicar says church.

Byline: Nicki Brooks

FOR an animal rights group to give fur coats to the homeless is patronising and insensitive.

The coats had been daubed with paint to prevent them being sold on. Isn't that adding insult to injury? It must be hard enough having to rely on handouts without being given something that is not only morally objectionable but also marks you out as being in need.

By now many of the women who accepted these coats will have found out just how impractical they are; fur is heavy to wear and once wet it is very difficult to dry. For this reason the professional overseas aid agencies stopped accepting fur many years ago. Fur garments have invariably been produced from animals that have suffered.
