Access Christmas appeal 2018 – help us make a difference!

10 October 2018
It’s time to think about Christmas – what you’re going to get, what you’re going to eat and hopefully, what you’re going to donate to your local charities! With your help, we want to make this our best Christmas campaign yet. All of your donations, together, will make a real difference to the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.

We really want to beat last year’s efforts, which saw 1,600 presents, including games, books, toys, clothing and even home-made creations given to charity. So far in the seven-year history of the Access Self Storage Christmas appeal, over 4,500 gifts have been collected for charities all across the UK. This is fantastic – and we know we can continue to build on that.

This year, 28 Access stores are participating, each dedicating a 50-square foot room to collect and keep your Christmas donations safe until they are distributed to their relevant charities.

Kevin Pratt, Access Self Storage spokesperson says: “Christmas is all about happiness, community and spreading goodwill. We really want to build on our past appeals and have our biggest year yet, so we’re calling on all residents and businesses to start donating as soon as possible. We’ve selected particular local charities because we truly believe in the work that they do, and we know how much of a difference they can make to people’s lives.”

If you’d like to contribute you can drop-off your donations at one of the branches below from now until December 14th. Your kindness could make someone’s Christmas this year.
