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 Parent Teacher Association (PTA) of Dorin Park School, to support its fundraising activities. The school helps students who have physical and learning difficulties, enhancing their personal, social and academic development, according to the source.
“At Big Yellow Chester, we have a strong community ethos and help a number of different charities; and when we learned of Dorin Park School’s need for space, we were only too pleased to get involved,” said Jeff Banks, the storage operator’s business-development manager. “I hope by providing free space for the PTA that they can now proceed with more events to help raise funds for the school.”
The PTA organizes several fundraisers throughout the year including summer and holiday fairs. It also solicits money from outside companies, according to its website.
“Having this space provided free of charge by Big Yellow is a huge help for our PTA, as space is limited at the school; and it will enable us to store items for events, which in turn will be used to raise much needed funds for resources for the pupils,” said Claire McKelvey, chair of the Dorin Park PTA. “It’s great to have a local company willing to provide support to our charity.”
Big Yellow Group operates 100 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 and Southeast England. Its total portfolio comprises 5.7 million square feet.
