Posted on May 16 2014 - 11:31pm by Tony Gonzalez

The Store Room in England chose the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity as their ‘charity of the year’ for 2014. Monies collected from their fundraising events this year will go to the Rainbow Trust.

To kick of this year’s fundraising efforts, The Store Room employees are participating in the National Three Peaks Challenge. This challenge involves climbing the three highest peaks in England, Wales, and Scotland within a 24 hour time period. The three peaks are Snowdon, Scafell Pike, and Ben Nevis.

Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the British Isles. It is 4,409 feet above sea level and is in the Lochaber area of the Schottis Highlands. Scafell Pike is 3,209 feet above sea level and is located in the Lake District National Park in Cumbria. Snowdon is 3,560 feet above sea level and is in the Snowdonia National Park in Gwynedd.

The Store Room employees that are participating in the event are Jeremy Bradburn, Managing Director, Carl Horsfield, Regional Manager, Suzanne Hirst, Finance Manager. Staff from the company’s Manchester, Bradford, and Leicester branches will also participate.

Dan Beer, from The Store Room said that it was really easy for them to choose the Rainbow Trust as the charity that they will support for this coming year. The self storage company is impressed with the service and support that they provide to sick children and their families.

Founded in 1986, the Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides emotional and practical support families that have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. They provide services tailored to the family’s specific needs. It could be as simple as helping with the shopping or ironing to give the mother a chance to relax. It could be reading to, talking to, or doing crafts with a sick child. It could even be playing with and providing attention to siblings of the sick child.

The Rainbow Trust appreciates being selected by The Store Room for their sponsored charity. The Rainbow Trust relies almost entirely on voluntary donations. Without these contributions, the Rainbow Trust would not be able to provide the services that they do to the sick children and their families.

The Store Room has 6 facilities throughout Leeds, Manchester, Preston, Bradford, Rotherham, and Leicester. They provide storage space for individuals, families, and students. Additionally, they provide offices and storage space for business. Over 1,000 businesses have used The Store Room’s facilities.
