We provide active fundraising events free to local charities with whom we work in close partnership. We cover all costs so they receive every penny raised and we provide all the equipment and promotional materials so they don't need to use their own limited resources. By organising the events ourselves we free them up to continue their valuable work helping those they serve.
Kelly's Storage Charity Events has raised over £600,000 for charity to date and hope to raise a million! We truly value our relationships with the charities and our staff thrive on being part of a company which genuinely cares about the local community.

How our staff get involved
We build long term relationships with the charities we partner and this has proved inspirational to our staff. They have embraced our approach to charitable giving and happily volunteer to help at our events or participate in them. From marshals and registration assistants to runners and riders, our staff get involved in every aspect of our charity events, having fun with colleagues outside of the office, whilst gaining the personal satisfaction of knowing they are giving back to the community. Every summer staff are encouraged to take on their own challenges and raise for charitable causes close to their hearts. We provide them with financial backing, match funding or other incentives to encourage their efforts and increase the amounts they raise for charities of their choosing.
What people are saying
I wanted thank you and all they Kelly’s team for a fantastic morning on Saturday – we were so thrilled to see so much support for the event and wonderful to be able to speak to so many people about our cause. The fundraising total has gone well beyond anything we could have hoped for – being a smaller local charity, these funds will be making an even greater impact on our clients and I look forward to reporting back on how the money will be spent this year. Huge thank you again for this incredible opportunity, we’ve enjoyed every minute! This really is a transformational amount of money for Oakleaf so we are incredibly grateful for all your hard work and effort that went into this event.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for supporting Shooting Star Children’s Hospices with your event on Saturday. It was a real pleasure to meet you and attend the event.
Shooting Star Chase
This is my 2nd year running the 10k. It’s a great event for a great cause! The atmosphere is brilliant and all organisers and Marshalls are really helpful. It’s a lovely family day out as there is a race for everyone and the recommended donations make it affordable for you all to take part. There were games etc for the children whilst I running my race, which is a big help for my husband keeping the children entertained. The route and views are stunning and I would thoroughly recommend.
Would just like to say a very big thank you to everyone who was involved on Sunday. Well done to the organisers for managing to come up with the alternatives at short notice after the tree problem. And a huge thank you to the marshals out on the course who put up with such horrendous conditions and continued to smile and shout out encouragement the whole way through. A great event.
