Wandsworth challenged to smash Easter egg record
- People of Battersea and Balham urged to donate chocolate eggs to
Wandsworth Food Bank -
The annual Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal is open to the people of Battersea and Balham for the very first time. This year the campaign - which has seen more than 2,800 chocolate eggs given to dozens of charities since it launched in 2011 - will benefit Access Self Storage Battersea and Balham’s nominated charity: Wandsworth Food Bank.
David Ferrari, manager of Access Self Storage Battersea said: “We know that people are very generous at Easter, and we hope they will consider doing something to help people of all ages who are living in crisis at this time of year, who depend on foodbanks to live. We have a store room ready to fill with eggs before we take them to Wandsworth Food Bank in time for Easter.”
Peter Hill, manager of Access Self Storage Balham added: “If you are out and about shopping for Easter Eggs, please consider buying an extra egg for someone who needs help in our community. With Easter nearly six weeks away, our combined efforts could smash all records and see hundreds of eggs piling up for such a great cause.”
Staff have already begun collecting eggs and people are invited to bring donations into either the Battersea or Balham stores any time before April 13th, when a delivery will be made to the charity.
In 2016, more than 800 chocolate eggs were shared among 10 charities across the UK and the most generous regions donating to the Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal were Guildford with 150 eggs, Camberley and Manchester with 122 eggs each, followed by Portsmouth with 76 eggs and Southampton with 75.
Wandsworth Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
