A Selly Oak storage company is appealing for donations of toys and games to donate to young people being treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham this Christmas.
Access Self Storage on Harborne Lane collected over 200 gifts last year thanks to overwhelming support from members of the public and local businesses.
In it’s fourth consecutive year, the Access Self Storage Selly Oak Christmas appeal supports the hospitals Charity Christmas Campaign which helps buy hampers for patients and staff to share, gifts for children and young people with cancer, and provide patients with free TV and parking on Christmas Day.
Deslynn Barter, manager of Access Self Storage Selly Oak said: “Last year we collected a more than 200 gifts and we were blown away by the generosity in our community. It’s now our fourth consecutive Christmas collecting for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity, so we are asking again for your support so we can place a smile on as many children’s faces as we can this Christmas.”
Justine Davy, Head of Fundraising at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity said: “The Charity is thrilled to be chosen again this year as beneficiary of Access Self Storage Selly Oak’s Christmas Appeal. These new toys will give a huge boost to the children we care for over Christmas. We really rely on the support of our community and businesses to be able to provide ‘added extras’ that are over and above what can be provided by the NHS alone. Every gift really will make a difference to the children who are going to be treated at the hospital over Christmas.”
All of the donations may be left at the reception of Access Self Storage Selly Oak, The Old Bus Garage, Harborne Lane, Birmingham, B29 6SN.
