Big Yellow Self Storage of Chester, Cheshire, England, a member of the Big Yellow Group PLC family of storage properties, is providing free storage space to the Chester FC Community Trust, the charitable arm of the Chester Football Club (FC), also known as “the Blues” or “the Seals.” The space, worth £3,000 annually, will help the team with its ongoing development of programs and initiatives, according to the source.
“We’re very grateful to Big Yellow for their fantastic support of the club. The free storage space will make a big difference as the trust continues to grow and develop,” said Jim Green. CEO of the trust.
Big Yellow Chester teamed up with Chester FC last month to collect toys during its annual Christmas Toy Appeal. Football fans were asked to donate items at Lookers Vauxhall Stadium in Chester. The gifts were then distributed to local children and family charities. In addition, club manager Jon McCarthy and team members delivered donations to the children’s ward at the Countess of Chester Hospital, the source reported.
“We have a tremendous link with the club, and as well as supporting the Blues on the [field], we wanted to help make a difference off the [field] too,” said Jeff Banks, business development manager at Big Yellow.
The Chester FC was founded in 2010 following the wind-up of its predecessor, the Chester City Football Club, according to Wikipedia.
Big Yellow Group operates 89 self-storage locations in the United Kingdom under the Big Yellow Self Storage and Armadillo Self Storage brand names, with most concentrated in Greater London. Its total portfolio comprises 5.3 million square feet.
