Space Station Self Storage, which operates nine facilities in England, has launched an initiative encouraging staff to donate 1 percent of their work hours to charitable fundraising and volunteering. In response, employees have given their time to various organizations and raised funds through bake sales, community events and the sale of goods donated from storage customers.
The West Drayton facility recently gave £600 to the Yiewsley & West Drayton Food Bank, which is part of a nationwide network supported by The Trussell Trust, founded in 1997 by Carol and Paddy Henderson. The food bank operates three locations in Uxbridge, West Drayton and Yiewsley, England.
Additional charities the operator supports include 52 Lives, St. John’s Hospice, Thames Hospice and Wythall Animal Rescue. Space Station also donates £5 to charity for every customer review about the facility left on consumer website Trustpilot.com.
Founded and owned by Alastair Caldwell, Space Station operates six facilities in London and one each in Birmingham, Slough and Uxbridge, England. The company also provides free moving services for customers who rent a self-storage unit.
