This Christmas you can help young people with brain injuries by donating toys and gifts.

Access Self Storage has joined forces with Newsquest South London - publisher of this newspaper - to collect brand new toys for charity.

We have nominated The Children's Trust, which helps children who have brain injuries, delivering rehabilitation and education to help them have the best life possible, to benefit this Christmas.

Six Access Self Storage branches across south London will see a 50 sq ft room filled to the brim with toys from generous donors from now until November 25.

The participating stores are Battersea, Wandsworth, Purley Way, Twickenham, Kingston and Charlton will be filled to the brim with toys from generous donors from now until November 25.

Last year’s collection saw more than 1,500 presents be delivered to charity.

Editor Jim Palmer said: "We are delighted to be teaming up with Access Self Storage to help out The Children's Trust, who do incredible work.

"Hopefully, with the backing of our readers, we will be able to support what they do and fill those storage units with toys."

Barry Whiteman, Access Self Storage Wandsworth store manager, said: “We cannot think of a more deserving beneficiary than The Children’s Trust.

“Christmas is a time for giving, not just to people we know, but also to people who we have never met. We hope that as many people as possible are able to give generously this year.”

Hannah Vince, of the Children’s Trust, said: “Donations like these help to keep our costs as low as possible so that more of the money we raise at our Christmas Fair will be put to great use in helping us continue to support children with brain injury and neurodisability.”

All donations may be left at the reception of the following Access Self Storage branches: Wandsworth, Battersea, Twickenham, Kingston, Purley Way and Charlton, where they will be stored safely until they are delivered to The Children’s Trust before November 25.
