Generous locals donated hundreds of toys to raise money for disadvantaged children over Christmas.

Access Self Storage's two Croydon branches, in Purley Way and Gloucester Road, were inundated with gifts after running a Christmas toy appeal in partnership with the Children’s Society. 

Gabriel Kroukamp, manager of the Purley Way store, said: "We are so grateful to all those who made the effort to bring toys to the store. You have made such a difference."

It received over 250 donated toys, which will be used to raise funds for often overlooked young people such as runaways and young carers and to support for young families in poverty.

Paul Tate, from the Children’s Society said: "We are amazed and very grateful to the Access staff, local people and businesses who have supported the Christmas toy appeal. 

"Though the economic climate is tough, the generosity and support for this appeal has been overwhelming and really does make a difference to children’s lives."
