CDL adds toys to Christmas donations


CDL prepares to deliver another consignment of winter clothing

UK: As well as being a collection station for unwanted items of warm winter clothing this Christmas, air conditioning distributor CDL is also donating 150 toys to children in difficult circumstances.

As reported in the Cooling Post at the beginning of November, Sunderland-based Cool Designs (CDL) has been acting as a collection station for local North-East charity the Winter Coat Amnesty by collecting unwanted items of winter clothing for distribution to the region’s homeless, isolated and vulnerably housed.

Now the company will also be loading up a van on December 30 to deliver presents to a children’s party at a local respite centre.
