Access Self Storage, one of the largest self storage companies in the UK, recently kicked off its annual Easter Egg Charity Appeal.
While Easter is principally a holiday of great significance for Christians, many other people, Christians included, take part in the bunny and candy side of the holiday. Access Self Storage wants to make sure that as many people as possible—those not in a financial position to purchase goodies themselves—can enjoy delicious chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday.
All of the company’s locations have appealed to their customers and the general public to donate a chocolate Easter egg.
“People are usually generous around Easter, and we hope that this year, even more people will consider doing something kind for those in need by supporting us with their Easter egg donations. We have dedicated storerooms allocated to donations at many of our stores, but now we need the public’s help to fill these up in time for Easter,” Access Self Storage spokesperson Kevin Pratt said in a press release.
Participating facilities will be collecting eggs through April 13. Easter falls on the following Sunday, April 16.
Some of the charities that will be beneficiaries of the egg appeal this year include the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, Frimley Park Hospital, Adventure Farm Trust, Rowan’s Hospice, The Rainbow Centre, the Salvation Army, The Children’s Trust in Tadworth, Adoption UK, Rennie Grove Hospice, Haven in Stevenage, and Wandsworth Food Bank.
Last year’s Appeal saw the company collect 800 eggs. Over the last five years, the company estimates it has collected and delivered approximately 2,800 eggs.
Steven Church, the manager of the Access Self Storage in Hemel, sums up the purpose of the appeal perfectly: “Easter eggs are a lovely way to put a smile on someone’s face.”
