Race on to collect as many Easter eggs as possible for St George’s
Local residents and businesses are invited to take part in an Easter Egg Appeal for our paediatric patients at St George’s.
Since 2011, Access Self Storage has hosted the appeal and has received more than 3,800 chocolate eggs – weighing more than a tonne of chocolate – for a range of charities. This year, the local storage branches want to beat last year’s egg-ceptional Easter Egg record of 160 eggs for patients on Jungle Ward at St George’s Hospital.
To take part, all you have to do is drop off your chocolate egg donation/s to the Balham or Battersea Access Self Storage reception point by Monday 26 March. All donations will be kept safe and delivered to the patients on Jungle Ward, a specialist paediatric ward, at St George’s in time for Easter.
Noel Cramer, Director of Fundraising at St George’s Hospital Charity, said: “Being in hospital is tough for everyone, but it is especially hard for children. That’s why we are so grateful for appeals like this which will bring some much-needed cheer at Easter.”
Oli Averty, Manager at Access Self Storage Battersea, said: “Chocolate eggs of all shapes and sizes are welcome, whether it’s a Crème Egg, a Kinder Egg or a packet of Mini Eggs. Every visitor we get is welcome to stay for a cup of tea. We’re aiming to beat the record of 160 eggs collected by one of our sister stores last year!”
Thank you to everyone taking part!
