The Manningtree branch of Mobile Mini, a leading hirer of portable accommodation and secure storage containers, has helped the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) Centre in Ely, after donating a storage container to house vital physio equipment.
The charity, which offers a national network of specialist rehabilitation for local people with an acquired brain injury (ABI), has a centre based at Fen House in Ely which was in desperate need of safe and secure storage.
On hearing of their plea for support, Kevin Welton, Branch Manager at Mobile Mini’s Manningtree branch, based in Riverside Avenue in Lawford, was more than willing to offer a helping hand by providing a free of charge storage container.
Cas Thorpe, Rehabilitation Coordinator at BIRT said: “I googled storage container companies in East Anglia and Mobile Mini came up. Looking more closely, I noticed that each of its depots aim to help local communities and can provide storage containers for those in need.
“There was a link on the Mobile Mini site which told the story of a young man who needed a physio room at home and the Mobile Mini had provided one, so I decided to email them to see if they could help us.
“Kevin met with us face to face to discuss our requirements and was very helpful and interested in the work we do in the local community. Mobile Mini’s storage container will make a huge difference to us and I’d like to thank Kevin and everybody at Mobile Mini for their kindness.”
The container has been donated under Mobile Mini’s Community Involvement Programme, which offers free of charge storage container hire to not-for-profit or voluntary organisations, where Mobile Mini’s support can make a real difference. All the company’s 16 depots, stretching from Glasgow to Southampton, can donate up to ten containers each year to worthy community causes.
Kevin Welton, Branch Manager at Mobile Mini in Manningtree, commented: “We’re delighted to help the BIRT team house equipment safely and securely. Our team fully understands how vital the work they do is and feels great about supporting the team so they can continue with their fantastic work, without worrying about storage space for supplies.”
