Big Yellow Storage makes space for Hollie Gazzard Trust

The Big Yellow Storage Company in Gloucester has become the latest big name to back the Hollie Gazzard Trust.

The Gloucester branch of the national group has offered storage space free of charge to the charity as a part of their ongoing commitment to the community.

Their charitable initiative, The Big Yellow Foundation, works with charity partners supporting vulnerable people find employment and create a better future.

At a local level, the firm are also keen to give back and believe offering storage space to charities is the perfect way.

John Isherwood, the Manager at Big Yellow in Gloucester said: ''we're delighted to be able to help the Hollie Gazzard Trust.

"Supporting local charities is a passion of ours and something we like to do in a hands-on way.

"There are so many fantastic causes right on our doorstep and being able to do our bit is important.

"Hollie's story has been a subject the whole city has followed so to be able to help Nick, his family and the charity out is the least we could do.''

The Trust requires storage for the merchandise, exhibition stands, marketing materials and general supplies.

Being able to store for no cost enables the charity to free up vital funds to continue to support our causes.

Hollie Guard, the Trust's APP now has over 40,000 downloads, which requires expense and maintenance, plus there is a new update planned for the autumn which will make the free personal safety device even more functional.

Nick Gazzard said: ''We'd like to extend a big thank you to John, Marie and the team at Big Yellow Storage Company in Gloucester for the warm welcome.

"The charity really needs to engage with local businesses so when this opportunity came up, we were over the moon.

"We're constantly looking for ways to fundraise so being able to make savings is just as good as raising new funds. Having Big Yellow supporting us in this way is brilliant.''
