PUBLISHED: 07:01 05 December 2017
An appeal has been launched to collect Christmas presents for people who are homeless this festive season.
Every year, staff at Access Self Storage on Stevenage’s Gunnels Wood Road choose a different charity for their Christmas appeal, which involves collecting presents for those in need.
This year, homeless hostel Stevenage Haven is the chosen charity and people are being asked to drop off new toiletries at Access Self Storage’s reception by December 15.
Wendy Guinan, who works at Stevenage Haven, said: “These donations by families, individuals and businesses in our community give a huge boost to the people we support at this time of year.”
Access Self Storage’s Stevenage manager, Ian Girvan, said: “Our staff selected Stevenage Haven to receive this year’s donations because we really believe in the great work they do.”
He said the appeal is all about putting a smile on a stranger’s face through a simple act of kindness.
