A self-storage business in Harold Wood is appealing for donations of new and unused games and toys in aid of a national charity.

Access Self-Storage Romford has set up a drop-off point at its 12, Southend Arterial Road store. Donations will be given to Children’s Society shops in the local area, which will be sold to raise funds for runaways, young carers, and the families of young children who live in poverty.

The donations will be collected from the Harold Wood store on December 14.

Children’s Society chief exec Matthew Reed said: “I am delighted that Access Self Storage is collecting toys to raise money and awareness for The Children’s Society. As a charity we rely on donations to continue our vital work supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged young people, especially at Christmas time.”

The store manager at the Harold Wood branch, David Fletcher, said: “Last year was such a success as we had over 100 gifts donated. Hopefully we can do even better this year.”
