U.K. self-storage operator Access Self Storage is conducting a holiday toy drive at all 56 of its locations throughout England. The “Christmas Toy Appeal 2012” event will benefit The Children’s Society, which works with vulnerable and disadvantaged children across the United Kingdom. Special drop-off points have been set up at each facility where customers and local residents can deposit their toy donations.
Those wishing to participate are urged to donate new and unused games and toys, which will be sold through the charity to raise funds. More than 5,000 toys were collected last year.
"Last year was such a success as we had over 100 gifts donated,” said Neil Hutchinson, manager of Access Self Storage’s St. Albans facility. "Hopefully we can do even better this year."
"Just £50 could help pay for a week’s supply of food for a destitute family of four, so thank you all for your generous help and support," said Matthew Reed, chief executive of The Children’s Society.
