Commons teddy bear boosts toy appeal

MP for Northampton South, David Mackintosh, showed his support for the annual Saints and Travis Perkins Christmas charity toy appeal by donating a House of Commons teddy bear.


Residents are encouraged to take part by donating Christmas toys at Travis Perkins branches in Northampton and these will then be distributed to disadvantaged children in the town for Christmas.

David said: “I was very pleased to be able to take part in the annual toy collection to help local children who otherwise wouldn’t get a toy this Christmas and I hope others will also take donate at local Travis Perkins stores.”
