Members of Curves Kenilworth donated the items over March and April.

They were given to two Coventry-based charities - the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre (CRMC), which exists to welcome and meet the needs of refugees and migrants, and Carriers of Hope, a charity dedicated to helping asylum seekers, refugees and Eastern European migrants in the Coventry area.

A spokesman for the two charities said they were 'very grateful' for the large amount of donations.
