The Nottingham Branch of Mobile Mini, a leading hirer of portable accommodation and secure storage containers, is helping the National Police Aid Convoys (NPAC) charity continue its vital aid work by providing them with essential storage containers for large amounts of donated aid goods.
After hearing about the charity’s storage shortage through social media, the Mobile Mini team, based in Ilkeston, got in touch to offer free of charge hire of two 20 foot containers that could house a large incoming donation of blankets and sleeping bags, a gift that would otherwise have been reluctantly turned away.
Nottingham-born Andy Lindsay, Internal Sales Executive at Mobile Mini Nottingham, first spotted the call for help on Facebook. He said: “We’re glad that we could support such a worthy cause.
“Our Nottingham team is honoured to be able to help the NPAC continue its essential aid work, supplying causes both here and in Africa. Their services are vital and it’s good to know we can help them to store supplies they may have otherwise turned away.”
Wanda Adams, Charity Secretary for the NPAC, said: “The breathing space we were given thanks to Mobile Mini’s incredible container donation has been immeasurable.
“Our other warehouses were full and if Andy, Graham and the Nottingham team hadn’t reached out to us we would have had to reject the donation, something we were adamant we would not do. Mobile Mini has enabled us to continue our endless mission to support organisations in need across the globe.”
The NPAC’s Mansfield headquarters recently began working with local charities Soldiers off the Street and Goodwill to share the huge donation of supplies, which are now stored in the Mobile Mini containers in Kirkby.
