The appeal will allow commuters to donate a new pair of socks to the homeless to help keep them warm.

Centre 33 chairman Colin Simmons said: "This will provide the centre with one of the most useful items of clothing we can give to our visitors - a clean pair of warm socks - at a cold, wet and often very difficult time of year for them."

Chief operating officer at GTR Steve White added: "Christmas is a time for giving, and all it takes is one pair of socks, less than the price of a coffee, to improve the life of a homeless person this winter.

"We want to thank our customers and colleagues for their ongoing support for those in need."
