This year the appeal - which has seen more than 8000 chocolate eggs given to dozens of charities since it launched in 2011 - will benefit the store’s nominated charity.
Access Self Storage last ran its Easter Egg appeal in 2020. Despite the challenges across the country, with Covid and the appeal having to close early due to restrictions, an egg-cellent 1100 Easter Eggs were still collected and distributed across numerous charities across the UK. They want to smash the egg donations in 2023 and beat these numbers!
The Head of Operations, Gareth Morris, at Access Self Storage, commented: “Our stores very much see themselves as part of the communities we serve, so we welcome the opportunity to help local charities who serve those very same communities.”
Our staff teams have already been making donations, and now we’re inviting customers, local residents and businesses to donate even more eggs to their nearest store before April 4th. Delivery will then be made to the charities in time for Easter.
