UK – The British plastic specialist, CHX Products, donated over 140,000 surplus pencils and 500 Frisbees to children in need. The aid programme was coordinated by Denise Broom, CEO of the British promotional products distributor, Broom Incentives, which has been asserting itself for the project for over seven years. Andy Knight, Managing Director of CHX Products: “It was at one of the meetings that Denise Broom spoke about her involvement in sending surplus products to Africa. We were keen to get involved in such a worthy cause and knew there would be products in our warehouse that could be donated that would benefit many local communities.”
The majority of the donated school supplies have already been delivered to the Jerusalem Baptist Church in Uganda, the respective local pastor is in charge of distributing the items to the schools.
