In Inverness, Scotland, a support group is leaving winter jackets on lamp posts for homeless people.

The group Serenity started to leave jackets around the city on December 8, and left some more last weekend. "A random act of kindness can change someone's day", they wrote on their Facebook page.

Vivienne Mackie, one of the organisers, told the Inverness Courrier it all started after she put an appeal on Facebook a few weeks ago. "Mums from my daughter's dance school donated a lot of jackets", she said. "More and more people got involved after that."

More jackets put out today for the homeless. One random act of kindness can change someone's day. We take alot of things in life for granted that others are praying for xx.

The MP for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross Jamie Stone welcomed the project and said himself would donate coats. He said it's "fantastic to see the kindness of strangers".

Locals in Inverness were happily surprised to find the jackets on the city's lamp posts.
