Staff at Kleeneze in Ipswich have thanked the generosity of its customers after Christmas gift donations for children’s charity Barnardo’s totalled more than £2,000 – it’s biggest year yet.
Each year Kleneeze collects donations from its customers to deliver to youngsters at the charity, and has benefited from an estimated £6,500 worth of gifts since it began in 2011.
Ali Lloyd, one of the donation organisers from Kleeneze, said: “We always feel very humbled by the generosity of our customers.
“It is amazing that this was our best year yet with lots of new customers donating too.
“Christmas time makes people so very generous and we love it that lots of families in need will be helped by our customers’ kindness.”
