Raising awareness for Sarcoma UK

Our amazing St Albans store manager Lana is running the London Marathon in October to raise money and awareness for sarcoma UK, and in memory of her best friend Hayley. Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that is rarely curable and Sarcoma UK is currently the only charity that focuses on this type of cancer. If you would like to donate, please follow this link:

Sobell House in Oxford

www.sobellhouse.org

Sobell House is a hospice based on the Churchill Hospital site and is part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. They were founded in 1968 and they offer specialist palliative care to those facing life threatening illness, death and bereavement in Oxfordshire. This encompasses physical, psychological, social and spiritual care and includes supporting their families and those close to them. Sobbell House’s mission is to improve and enrich the lives of patients and those who love and care for them and to ensure that excellent palliative and end of live care is available to everybody who needs it.

“Sobell House cared for my grandfather during his final days and I have witnessed, firsthand, what amazing physical, psychological, social and spiritual care they provide to people across Oxfordshire. It gives me great pleasure to support this wonderful charity because of the fantastic support they provide to both residents and their families. I honestly couldn’t think of a more worthy charity for Magenta Self Storage to support”
– Jeremy Parsons, Oxford Store Manager

Edgar’s Gift, St Albans

www.edgarsgift.org.uk

Edgar’s Gift is a charity set up in 2010 in memory of Ben Edkins, a 25 year old man who passed away after a yearlong fight with very rare and aggressive cancer. The charity provides gifts and experiences to young adults suffering with cancer. Edgar’s Gift raises money by organising events that vary from quiz nights and raffles all the way up to football Games featuring ‘Legends’ of years gone by. Edgar’s Gift has links with local hospitals that make us aware of people who need our help.

“This charity is very close to our heart as it helped my best friend Hayley who died to sarcoma cancer at the age of 30. Edgar’s Gift Charity got in contact and asked Hayley if they could gift her anything what would it be. Hayley choose an iPad so she was able to watch films while in hospital as she was not allowed any visitors due to COVID. This helped Hayley keep her mind distracted and gave her some company that she desperately needed. The charity continued to stay in touch with Hayley and offer support. Edgar’s Gift is a small non profitable charity offering gifts to young people with cancer all in the name of their son who also lost his life to sarcoma cancer. So if you are able to round up your payments it would mean a lot to everyone at magenta St Albans so that you can help Edgar’s Gift”
– Lana, St Albans Store Manager

 

 

Box Aid

Box Aid is a humanitarian project that finds and repurposes goods bound for landfill and then redistributes them. These goods go mostly to struggling individual and families in temporary accommodations. Box Aid also sends essential items – such as clothing, clothes and other materials, to individual and community abroad. For example, Box Aid has been helping the Batwa Tribe by providing clothing and other essentials, as well as materials for the tribe to use and create art and other goods that they can sell.

We have chosen to support Box Aid as it helps many different people in different countries whilst recycling items that would normally end up in a landfill. From the training into how to fix broken items that have been discarded then sold in a 2nd hand shop to raise money that directly helps the local communities help themselves going forward. These benefits whilst saving mother earth is the reason why Magenta Chiswick supports Box Aid.”
– Simon, Stirling Road Store Manager

RSPCA, Nottingham

www.rspca-nottinghamandnotts.org.uk

RSPCA in Nottingham aims to raise as much money as possible through collections, charity shop and promotions so that un-owned animals in the area always have someone to care for them. The charity provides vital care for sick, injured, and stray animals even when their centre is at full capacity. The charity also takes care of covering crucial vet bills, from basic veterinary treatment to seriously ill or injured animals.

“It’s becoming quite apparent that rescue centres are rapidly filling up with animals that were brought home during restrictions and people now can’t cope. Combined with the pending Christmas boom of animals being brought as gifts, the charity needs all the help it can get. Even hoping to rescue a few myself…”
