Coronation Street star Julie Hesmondhalgh has lent her support to a charity fundraiser by donating a signed red anorak similar to the one worn by her character Hayley Cropper.

The quirky item is going under the hammer in an online 'Wrap Up Against Poverty' auction, organised by the Elizabeth Finn Care charity - which works to help those who have fallen below the poverty line.

Money raised from the auction will be used to help people in financial need to buy clothing, allowing them to keep warm during the winter months.

As seen below, the coat donated by Julie has a signed message from the actress on the back, which reads: "You can't beat a lovely red anorak! Hayley wouldn't be seen without one, and neither should you. PLEASE BUY ME. Lots of love, Julie Hesmondhalgh x (Hayley in Corrie)."

Other famous faces who have donated coats for the auction include Lynda Bellingham, Meg Matthews, Clare Nasir, Tamara Ecclestone and Ruth Badger.

Malcolm Tyndall, Director at Elizabeth Finn Care, commented: "We have some wonderful coats to auction and we really appreciate the celebrities' generosity. By supporting the auction you could not only win a coat worn by one of your favourite celebrities but you will also be helping us to ensure people in financial need have warm clothes to wear during the winter months."

A final reminder - this is not the actual coat used in Coronation Street but is similar to the one we see in the show.
