Havering residents are urged to get behind this year’s Recorder Christmas appeal and help make this festive season one to remember for children with special educational needs in the borough.
The charity benefitting from Access Self Storage Romford’s annual appeal this year is First Step, who were nominated by us here at the Recorder.
Based in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, the charity works tirelessly to provide help and support to the families of children with special needs.
To take part in this year’s Access Self Storage Christmas Appeal, all residents have to do is donate new pre-school toys in the reception of Access Self Storage Romford in the A127 Southend Arterial Road any time from now until December 14.
Michelle Mitchell, fundraising manager for First Step, said: “We’re thrilled that the Romford Recorder has nominated First Step to receive gifts donated to this year’s Access Self Storage Christmas appeal.
“Fundraising at First Step is essential and we rely on the generous support of our community.
“To have the support of a business like Access Self Storage is a great boost at this time of year and every donation will support the children and families we help. We are really looking forward to working together to make this appeal a success.”
The charity works with more than 100 pre-school children with special needs and disabilities - as well as their families - offering educational services, support, information and encouragement. Its aim is to help these young children maximise their individual potential.
Moiz Syed, manager of Access Self Storage Romford, said: “The Romford Recorder have chosen such a great charity for our appeal to support this Christmas.
“First Step does incredible work and we really hope our community can dig deep and give new preschool toys, however big or small, because each one will really make a difference to the children in our community under the care of First Step.”
Last year, the Recorder nominated Hope for Havering, and they were one of a number of local charities across the UK to benefit from more than 1,600 presents which were donated to Access Self Storage last year.
