Copthorne residents have helped collect gifts worth thousands of pounds for charity in time for Christmas.

Clive and Bev Currier and Lindsey Field, all from Copthorne, collected more than £5,000 worth of toys with their colleagues at Kleeneze, a mail-order company.

Many of the toys are for Christmas and everything collected is donated to Rockinghorse Children’s Charity.

The charity is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital and supports the children’s unit in East Surrey Hospital and the Special Care Baby Unit in Haywards Heath as well as other units across Sussex.

Clive Currier said: “When a customer buys a toy, we get a commission which we put back into the pot to buy more toys – this way the gifts are even bigger. Sometimes customers give us additional gifts which are also donated.”

Analiese Doctrove, head of fundraising at Rockinghorse Children’s Charity, said: “It’s fantastic to have so many toys and gifts donated by the Kleeneze team. They work very hard to bring us all these gifts for the children and we really appreciate the support.”
