KLEENEZE distributors in the Advertiser region have donated more than £3,000 worth of toys to Barnardo’s, thanks to the generosity of their customers.

Team leader Andy Brown said eight distributors took part, from Buckingham, Winslow, Brackley, Towcester and Bicester.

Team members gave their regular customers the option of purchasing a toy from the catalogue to donate to the charity.

Then the distributors ploughed their 20 per cent commission on the purchases into buying more toys to donate.

A total of £3,642 worth of toys have been delivered to Barnardo’s regional office, to be distributed to children in Bucks, Oxon and Northants.

Mr Brown said: “We want to show our customers what we’ve done and thank them for their generosity and help.”

Kleeneze distributors nationally have contributed towards a total of £76,000 worth of toys for Barnardo’s.
