Reading Access Self Storage To Fill Empty Storage Unit With Easter Eggs For Local Charity

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Reading Access Self Storage launches its annual Easter Egg campaign, with a completely empty storage unit.  There is hope that the appeal this year will see locals donate eggs to completely fill the empty 2.5m2 – similar in size to an old-fashioned red phone box – storage unit.  

To fill the container, which is approximately 9ft high and 3ft wide, the team will need to collect around 200 boxed supermarket Easter Eggs…any extras will spill over into a larger unit.

Thousands of Easter Eggs have been donated by stores local communities and customers since the collections began in 2011, and in 2024 54 Access Self Storage stores will be collecting.

If every store fills its 2.5m2 container that’s 11,800 Easter Eggs that can be collected, all to be distributed across good causes, locally and across the UK. 

Oliver Majcen, Store Manager, Access Self Storage Reading said: “Everyone deserves a treat this Easter and we’d love to fill our storage unit with Easter Eggs.  It couldn’t be easier to donate,  eggs can be dropped off at any Access Self Storage store, at any time.  We want to be able to collect as many eggs as possible, and to distribute them to those in need, and helped by our chosen charity this year.”

Jan Albert Fourie, General Manager of Operations at Access Self Storage commented, “It’s so important for our store teams to work closely with their local communities and to be able to help those that will really benefit from this collection.  Our aim is to fill our storage units over and over whilst this campaign remains open and if we can collect 12,000 Easter Eggs this year, we know the teams and our charity partners will be so grateful.  If every customer donates just one Easter Egg throughout this campaign we can smash our target and make a huge difference.”

Staff have already begun collecting eggs and donations can be made at the store between 1st March – 25th March, ahead of the charity collection and distribution in time for Easter.

Kamaljit Kundhi, President of Reading Lions Club said, “We are delighted to be working with Access Storage Reading on its Easter Egg Appeal this year. It fits perfectly with our principal Club objective which has always been to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Let’s get the container full and bring a little joy to those in need in our local community.” 

Since the Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal launched in 2011, more than 8000 chocolate eggs have been donated to dozens of charities across the UK.   The aim for 2024 is to double this!
