Everyone at Smart Storage believes that giving back to the community matters. This is why we all do our best to support the community where our stores are located, and why we want to continue helping with everything we can – whether it’s with time, donations or even space!

So, we hope you enjoy reading about what we’ve been up to, and help us give back to the community by supporting these fantastic charities, organisations and events as well!

Sefton 4 Good

We’re supporting Sefton 4 Good and everything it stands for! This amazing charity is organised by the Sefton Council for Voluntary Service and encourages local people to come together to help local causes.

Be it with time, money, skills or resources, Sefton 4 Good works together with people and businesses, just like Smart Storage, to create a better Sefton and bring everyone together. The idea is to make Sefton a wonderful place to live and work, and we couldn’t be happier that we’re contributing toward this worthy goal at our Liverpool store with our support and donations, such as cardboard boxes.

This initiative also recognises people that have made a difference in their local communities, a fantastic way of praising the good deeds, support and kindness of citizens in the area – you can even nominate your Citizen 4 Good here and say who you think deserves this recognition for their great work with the community!

 


MacMillan’s Coffee Morning

At our Altrincham and Widnes locations, we participated in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning this September by helping MacMillan Merseyside and Cheshire, with delicious cakes, cupcakes and other assorted sweets that worked like a charm. Supporting such an incredible cause is very important to us, and we even raised £177.60 at Altrincham, which made us all very happy indeed! MacMillan is an amazing cancer support organisation that does fantastic work and provides useful information for anyone suffering from this disease, as well as providing support for family members and friends of people with cancer. The support they offer is truly appreciated by anyone whose lives have been affected by cancer, so the least we could do is help them change lives by the slice! You can do it too by getting involved through donating or volunteering.

Fans for Diversity

What better way to unite the community of Altrincham while promoting a great cause like diversity? Well, by partnering up with Altrincham FC who engaged in a little friendly competition by playing against Rushall Olympic in a non-league game. The aim of this day, which occurred on the 7th of October, was to bring people of every age, gender, race, faith, sexual orientation, and other identifying features together, and to ensure they enjoyed a fantastic day where they felt included and safe.

All of the community were more than welcome to attend this great initiative, which promotes diversity and inclusion and stands against discrimination. We were so happy that we could sponsor the match and support the off-field activities.

Because we believe this is such a great cause, we also hosted a primary school art competition alongside Altrincham FC and Art with a Heart! Ensuring diversity and inclusion is really a worthwhile cause that we’re proud to support, something you can learn more about it here.
