Thank you Armadillo!
We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Armadillo who has donated 400ft2 container space to us.
Armadillo’s generous donation has allowed us the additional space we needed to be able to accept our community’s kind donations of their preloved items that they have been sorting through and decluttering throughout the recent lockdowns. This year in particular, we have relied on the generosity of the public to help our retail team get back on their feet when they were able to reopen, and these items have been a much-needed lifeline for our retail operation after months of closure due to Covid restrictions. Now that we have successfully managed the influx of donations after lockdown, the storage space is currently being used to house our Christmas stock, which is ready to go out to our stores later in the year to hopefully bring in a successful festive season for each of our shops. A storage unit of this size would be costly to a charity like us and simply put, without the space Armadillo provided, we would not have been able to accept the huge amount of kind donations we needed to have a successful reopening, which would have hampered our recovery at one of the most important times the team had ever faced.
Armadillo Self-Storage allows every store to pick a charity to support. Daley Lowe from the Grimsby store says he chose us as a local charity to support because to him “St Andrew’s Hospice is an important charity, especially after the difficult year everyone has had and those who we look after are put in a more vulnerable position than they already are. Daley donates his items with us regularly as he believes in helping to support the community by working with local charities like ourselves.”
Thank you so much to Armadillo Storage Unit and Daley Lowe for choosing to donate with us. We really appreciate it!
