Access Self Storage launches 2020 Easter Egg Appeal

24 March 2020

Help us beat our Easter Egg record for charities across the UK.

The Access Self Storage Easter Appeal 2020 is still going ahead. All participating stores have set up donation boxes in reception to allow for social distancing. Please see below for details on what stores are collecting for their chosen charities.

This year, Access Self Storage Stores have set aside a combined 950sq ft of storage space to be filled with chocolate Easter eggs for charities across the UK.

More than 7,000 chocolate eggs have been donated to dozens of UK charities since the Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal started nine years ago. In 2019 alone, more than 2,000 chocolate eggs were collected by Access Self Storage and shared among 16 charities across the UK - and we want to beat that record in 2020!

Our staff teams have already been making donations and now we’re inviting customers, local residents and businesses to donate even more eggs (and other items) to their nearest store before April 6th. Deliveries will then be made to the charities in time for Easter.
