UK Self-Storage Owner Donates £20K in Door Knobs and Handles to West Norfolk Mind Charity

Steve Sokalsky, owner of Self Storage Hire in Lenwade, England, has donated thousands of door knobs and handles worth approximately £20,000 to West Norfolk Mind, a furniture retailer that also offers carpentry workshops as a mental-health service. Sokalsky cleared out unwanted stock from his online business that sells the hardware to concentrate more on the self-storage business, according to the source.

“I really wanted the stock to go to good use. I saw that as well as the furniture shop, West Norfolk Mind also offered courses and help get people actively involved with projects,” Sokalsky told the source. “A close friend has also needed their support before, and they really did help him out.”

The donation ranges from small pieces designed for children’s furniture to large handles intended for heavy doors, the source reported. West Norfolk Mind will sell some of the hardware but direct some of the items for use in its workshops.

“At a time when mental-health services are significantly underfunded, this donation will go a long way,” said Zena Penty, volunteer coordinator at the King’s Lynn, England, store where Sokalsky made his donation. “It is protecting the services we already offer as well as contributing to their further development.”

Sokalsky operates Self Storage Hire, Dowel Ironmongery & Furniture Fittings and a handle shop in the same property area off of Porters Lane in Lenwade.
