Solihull asked to help fill a telephone box with Easter Eggs for foodbanks

Solihull Editorial 3rd Mar, 2024   0

SILHILLIANS are being called on to help fill a storage unit the size of a telephone box for Young At Heart and North Solihull Foodbank.

Access Self Storage has launched its annual Easter Egg campaign, with a completely empty storage unit.

There is hope that the appeal this year will see residents donate eggs to completely fill the empty 2.5-metre squared – similar in size to an old-fashioned red phone box – storage unit.

To fill the container, which is approximately nine-foot high and three-foot wide, the team will need to collect around 200 boxed supermarket Easter Eggs.

Michael Price, store manager at Access Self Storage Birmingham Central, said: “Everyone deserves a treat this Easter and we’d love to fill our storage unit with Easter Eggs.

“It couldn’t be easier to donate, eggs can be dropped off at any Access Self Storage store, at any time.

“We want to be able to collect as many eggs as possible, and to distribute them to those in need, and helped by our chosen charity this year.”

Since the Access Self Storage Easter Egg Appeal launched in 2011, more than 8,000 chocolate eggs have been donated to dozens of charities across the UK.

Donations can be handed to Access Self Storage at 180 Sherlock Street in Birmingham or Kingsbury Trading Est, 627 Kingsbury Road in Erdington until March 25.
