UK Self-Storage Operator Safestore Launches 'Great Donate' Challenge

Safestore, which operates more than 120 self-storage facilities in the United Kingdom, is launching the “Great Donate” drive in July to collect books, clothes, household goods and toys to benefit Scope, which provides advice, information and support for disabled people and their families. The donated items will be sold through Scope’s charity shops nationwide, according to the source. Community members can drop them off at any Safestore facility or Scope store in England, Scotland and Wales.

This is the sixth consecutive year Safestore has supported the nonprofit. It has raised thousands of dollars for the organization through stock donations and regularly donates storage units for use by the charity, the source reported.

Scope was founded in 1952 as The Spastics Society by three parents of children with cerebral palsy who sought education and resources for their kids. The organization became Scope in 1994 to better reflect its positive message, according to its website.

Safestore operates 123 self-storage facilities, including approximately 100 facilities it owns in the U.K. and 24 it owns in France. The company also manages a dozen U.K. sites. Its wholly owned properties comprise more than 5 million square feet of storage space, while its entire portfolio serves approximately 48,000 customers.
