Although the appeal had to close early due to government safety restrictions to help tackle the coronavirus, an eggcellent 1100 eggs were still collected. 

Our annual Easter appeal aims to collect as many eggs as possible to donate to charities around the UK. Including this year’s collection, more than 8,000 chocolate eggs have been donated to UK charities since the Access Self Storage Easter appeal launched in 2011.

11 Access Self Storage Stores set aside a combined 650 square feet of storage space to be filled with Chocolate Easter eggs for 11 charities across the UK.

This year, Access Self Storage Portsmouth lead the charge having collected over 300 eggs for Rowan’s Hospice.

Meanwhile Access Self Storage Harrow collected over 200 eggs for Kids Can Achieve, while Access Self Storage Northampton received 100 donations.  This stores eggs went to The Lewis Foundation.
