A storage company is hoping its Christmas appeal will help vital medical research.
Access Self Storage Mitcham store manager, Ajanthan Naguleswaran said: "Last year was such a success as we had over 100 donations. This year we hope that the public will get behind us to support such a great local charity and beat last year’s total.
Please, please donate now to the appeal so we can continue to help raise awareness and support Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia patients, their carers and families."
A drop off point is open at Unit 1 Gresham Way, Wimbledon, and 141 Morden Road, Mitcham.
Eulalee Valentine from Merton Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia Group said: "We want to continue to raise awareness and support Sickle Cell and Thalassaemia patients, their carers and families, allowing their `voices’ to be heard.
"To enable us to do this Merton Sickle Cell & Thalassaemia Group needs support. We need to raise £100,000 for premises and an outreach worker."
