Generous customers and residents have donated more than 150 Christmas gifts to a charity in Cricklewood which will be given to individuals and families.

The festive project by Access Self Storage in Cricklewood and Neasden, invited people to hand in tinned and non-perishable food items, new or un-used toiletries, shampoo and cleaning products, old working laptops and mobile phones with charges or new or cleaned second hand sleeping bags and towels.

All the donated items were turned into gifts which were given to Ashford Place in Ashford Road, a charity that offers support to the homeless or people with mental or physical health issues, unemployment or addictions.

Aimee Bruce, from Access Self Storage in Cricklewood, said: “We had an unprecedented response to our call for donations, we had so many kind people come through our doors dropping off items from Ashford Place’s Christmas wish-list and we want to say thank you to every single one of them.”

Brett Hoy, manager of Access Neasden added: “This is one of the most successful Christmas appeals that Access Self Storage has ever done on a local level and it’s a record collection for our stores.”
