A local charity which helps homeless people on the Isle of Man has been receiving Christmas gifts from local businesses and the Island's health authority.

The Department of Health and Social Care have been collecting presents from workers in the Department and a number of Manx companies to support those who find themselves without a home this Christmas.

The gifts have been donated to Graih, which supports the homeless, as well as those living in temporary or unsuitable accomodation.

A wide range of businesses donated, including Shoprite, Dukes and Intersport.

Graih recently revealed 150 people contacted the charity for help during 2015.
