Charity Bromley Brighter Beginnings (BBB) has been nominated by the Bromley Times to be beneficiaries of this year’s annual Access Self Storage Christmas Charity Appeal.

Residents and businesses are invited to donate new, small cuddly toys, chocolates and craft supplies by leaving them at Access Self Storage in Orpington on Cray Avenue until December 7.

BBB is an organisation dedicated to supporting local families in financial hardship, as well as women and children in domestic violence refuges. All gifts collected will be used to fill hampers that will be delivered to local families in crisis, giving them a welcome boost over the Christmas period.

In the seven-year history of the appeal, more than 4,500 gifts have been collected for hospitals and charities across the UK.

Emma Martin from BBB said: “We are thrilled that the Bromley Times has nominated us to benefit from this year’s Access Self Storage Christmas appeal for the children and families who are referred to us.

“All are in financial hardship and the gifts donated will be placed in a hamper and given to them for Christmas.

“These hampers bring these families a little joy at what for them is a really difficult time of year, and they help relieve the pressure on parents.

“We rely on donations from members of the public, community groups and companies to supply the items we need for our hampers.

“Having a big company like Access Self Storage to support us along with our local newspaper is just amazing, and we are very grateful.”

Access Self Storage Orpington manager Chris Isted said: “We are so grateful to the Bromley Times for nominating such a great charity.

“The hampers that we’re helping Bromley Brighter Beginnings to create is what this campaign is all about - together we’re supporting those in our community who need it the most.

“We want to urge residents of Orpington and Bromley to donate and help spread a little cheer to these local families at Christmas.”

All donations may be left at the reception of Access Self Storage Orpington where they will be stored safely until they are delivered to BBB after the December 7.
