We were recently able to help out local charity Peace and Hope Trust through our Community Involvement Programme.
The Peace and Hope Trust is a UK based charity which has been working amongst the poor communities of Nicaragua for over two decades, endeavouring to make a positive difference in people’s lives.
The Trust’s warehouse in Herefordshire stores a variety of equipment and supplies on their way to Nicaragua, including school and hospital equipment, tools, sewing machines, housewares and clothing, all of which are desperately needed in the poor communities served by the Trust.
Recently the trust has been in need of a storage solution for larger, mainly medical, donated items of aid such as hospital beds, mattresses and mobility chairs etc.
So, this is where we come in!
Having seen our containers around in several areas, Tim Sharpe, from the charity, took a look on our website. He then contacted our Southampton branch to find out more about our Community Involvement Programme, which offers free of charge storage container hire to non-profit or voluntary organisations.
After an informative discussion with one of our Internal Sales Executive, Tim was delighted to learn we would be able to donate two of our 20ft containers.
He said: “It got to the point where we needed more storage space for larger items and as I’d seen Mobile Mini’s containers around, I thought I’d check out the website.
“I was delighted when I read about their Community Involvement Programme and spoke to a helpful member of their sales team to see how we could benefit from it.
“It’s refreshing to come across a company that helps charities, with no real strings attached and although it’s the first time I have worked with the Company, I would rate them very highly, with no hesitation to recommend them.”
