Staff and children at Wexham Park Hospital, Slough, Hillingdon Hospital in Hillingdon and West Middlesex Hospital, Isleworth will be delighted once again with the delivery of one hundred chocolate Easter eggs, courtesy of the Space Station Storage team.
Now in our fourth year of donating these seasonal goodies to the NHS Trust in Slough, Middlesex and Isleworth our aim is to cheer up children who are spending the Easter holiday in hospital, or are visited by medical staff from the ward at home.
Once again this year Slough Space Station managers Sue Cole and Jonathan Slade will dispatch a van loaded with crates of Easter Eggs to bring a smile to the faces of children in hospital over Easter.
Jonathan said “As the longest established self storage company in the UK, we’re well known in the area and being an active part of the community is important to us. Most of our staff live in and around [the immediate vicinity of our branches in Slough, Isleworth and Middlesex] so it’s nice to give something back – and what better way than to treat those children who are unfortunately having to spend their Easter break in hospital, or unwell at home.”
Established in 1983, Space Station was founded by Alastair Caldwell, who was famous for leading the Maclaren Formula One racing team, managing World Champion driver James Hunt. Several generations on, the company remains family-run and with its heart set firmly in the local communities of Slough, Brentford, Isleworth and Uxbridge, which it has served for over three decades.
Sue Cole, who has recently celebrated her fifth year with the firm, added:
“It’s such a lovely feeling dropping off the crates of colourful Easter treats at the hospital – the staff are always very grateful and it’s really nice to be able to do something which will bring a smile to the faces of the children who can’t be out and about and enjoying themselves this Easter break.”
Other branches of the firm will also be partaking in this year’s annual Easter egg donation, to help reach even more poorly children in the region. Watch a video about last year’s egg donation by clicking here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVwFwi-Goas
