      Many other clothing items came from friends and family, Rush, said: "Everybody from all walks of life have been interested in helping. Whether it be some kind of present or gift if you like, to give away and that's what it was.

       

      "We didn't want it to look like 'look at us doing something good and helping the homeless' you know, we all get gifts at Christmas so it's nice to make a 'Christmas come early' day for other people."
       
      The team plan to donate leftover clothes to hostels and charities in the Greater Manchester area.
