Over 3000 shoeboxes collected for the Manchester Street Angels

21 December 2020
Over 3,000 shoeboxes filled with winter goods and essentials were donated by generous individuals and businesses from Manchester to the Manchester Street Angels in the annual Access Self Storage Manchester Christmas Charity Appeal. The Manchester Street Angels and the Access team spent weeks rallying the local community to support the campaign, and the boxes took up 600sq feet of storage space.

The Manchester Street Angels patrol the streets in Manchester city centre on weekend evenings, helping those who are or could become vulnerable within the night-time economy. Local projects have contributed to significant reductions in violent crime and anti-social behaviour in many of the communities they work in. This year, they collected shoeboxes full of goods ranging from toiletries, food, warm clothes toys to dog biscuits for the homeless and vulnerable in Manchester.

Rachel Goddard and her family ran the appeal from the store, and spent hours sorting through the donations. Rachel Goddard from the Manchester Street Angels said: "It's going to be a tough Christmas for lots of people this year, so supporting your local community is even more important. We'd like to thank everyone who donated and Access Self Storage for their support and generosity!"

Access Self Storage Manchester manager Lee Porteus said: "We're bowled over by the number of boxes that people gave so generously to help the Manchester Street Angels do their great work this year. Thank you for your kindness, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas!"
