Suffolk drains products company pulls out all the stops for charity

A DRAINS products company has helped plug a gap in fresh drinking water access for people in developing countries with a charitable campaign.

Buster, based at Hadleigh, is celebrating after taking part in national Plughole Week, which raised almost �10,500 for Oxfam GB through a five pence donation on every product sold during the campaign.

The money will be used to support Oxfam GB's water and sanitation work, providing people in developing countries with items such as rainwater harvesting systems, filters and essential hygiene kits which will enable them to gain access to safe drinking water. It is estimated the donation will help 14,000 people.

Buster brand manager Louise Perry said: “We are absolutely thrilled with the final total. It exceeded all of our expectations. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the campaign, either through making a donation or by buying a bottle of the product. Buster is a caring brand and the donation to Oxfam will provide clean, safe water to help thousands of people who don't have access to the luxuries we take for granted.”

Natalie Griffin of Oxfam GB said they were “very grateful” for the support shown by Buster and National Plughole Week.
