A MANCHESTER self storage company has thanked the local community for an ‘overwhelming’ response of generosity in a Christmas toy appeal which was reported in Messenger.

Access Self Storage made the appeal to local businesses and residents for a donation of toys, of which they received more than 100, in what has been branded a huge success.

The toys were donated to The Children’s Society who work with and support some of the most vulnerable, disadvantaged and poverty stricken children and young people across the UK, who need help, especially at Christmas.
