Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal Returns

24th February 2020

The Access Self Storage Manchester Charity Easter Egg Appeal is now open! Every year the Manchester team works hard with the community to collect as many chocolate eggs as they can for the disabled, disadvantaged and terminally ill children visit the Farm this year.

Last year the collected 150 chocolate eggs! This year they want to beat that record and they need your help to do so…

Access Self Storage Manchester manager Lee Porteus said: “If you’re out at a supermarket and buying Easter Eggs for family and friends, why not put one more in your trolley and drop it off for the children looked after by the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust? Our team has started to donate, and we’re really happy to put the kettle on and make a cup of tea for anyone bringing an egg who wants to stay for a chat. We are so proud of our local community for their continued support over the years for this inspirational charity.”

 Helen Crowther, one of Fundraisers comments: “We are really grateful to companies like Access who not only collect donations for us, but help spread the word in the community of the work we do. For so many of our families that walk through our door, and are sadly facing unimaginable circumstances, these chocolate eggs will help to bring a little cheer.  We really enjoy working with the Access Self Storage team who, over the years of working together, have now become part of our family!  We thank you for your wonderful gesture!”

Staff have already started collecting eggs and people are invited to bring donations into the Manchester store on Leestone Road any time from now until before April 6th when a delivery will be made to CAFT just in time for Easter.

In 2019, more than 2,000 chocolate eggs were collected by Access Self Storage and shared among 16 charities across the UK.

More than 7000 chocolate eggs have been donated to UK charities since the Access Self Storage Easter appeal launched in 2011. This year 17 Access Self Storage Stores will set aside a combined 950 ft of storage space to be filled with Chocolate Easter eggs for 17 charities across the UK.

It is thanks to companies like this within our community that CAFT can provide so much to the children who deserve so much. The children that visit CAFT have often experienced distress and suffering within their young years and it is the little things, like Easter Eggs that can bring smiles and happiness.

If you would like to contribute to the smiles this Easter, you can drop off your chocolate eggs at the address below. And from everyone here at the Farm, a great big THANK YOU!
