Big Yellow Self Storage donates space to Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care.

Big Yellow Self Storage, based in Bramall Lane, decided to add the space to the existing 75 sq ft it had already given to Sheffield Churches Council for Community Care, or SCCCC.

The organisations have been working together for a year, and the firm made the new offer after the charity received a large donation of furniture from a former fire station.

SCCCC fundraiser Ericka Hill said: “Big Yellow has been a fantastic supporter of our charity over the past year and we are delighted that our partnership is moving up a gear.

"The whole team has been so helpful, caring and friendly, providing us with everything from storage space and meeting rooms to a man with a van to help us transport donations to the store.”

Big Yellow store manager Trina Lowe added: “Big Yellow is always looking for ways to support the local community, so when we heard about the great work SCCCC was doing we were keen to help.

"We hope our support will help take some of the weight off their shoulders so they’re able to focus on the essential support they provide to the local hospitals and elderly residents.”
