To mark the opening of the new Attic Self Storage local primary students are being asked to draw or paint a picture depicting the ‘Beauty of Beckton.’

For each artwork received, Attic will donate £5 to Richard House Children’s Hospice in Beckton, which supports families from several London boroughs including Newham, Barking, Dagenham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Hackney.

Richard House Children’s Hospice based offer invaluable care to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions across London.

The artworks must be submitted via post or uploaded to Attic’s website.  

Attic will also be donating £500 worth of art and craft supplies to the school with the most entries.

The submitted artworks will be displayed inside Attic’s new Beckton facility and showcased at an exhibition this summer.

Attic has commissioned local Beckton artist Matt Ponting, to create a bespoke art installation. The installation will be inspired by the children’s artwork and also be displayed at the exhibition.  

Kathryn Elvin, Head of Corporate Engagements and Partnerships at Richard House Children’s Hospice comments:

“Beckton is a vibrant community, so we have no doubt that there will be some fantastic entries for the competition.  

“We are very pleased to be supported by Attic Self Storage. Their valuable donations will play a vital role in helping local families with a life-limited child to access therapies, respite, community support and friendship to help them enjoy positive memories together and an improved quality of life.”    

The new self-storage facility will be located off the A13, in Claps Gate Retail Park in East London, and will create more space for local residents and businesses with 24/7 access. The site opens this summer and offers the convenience of keyless electronic locks which customers can control via an app.  

Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, Founder and CEO of Attic Self Storage, says:

“We are proud to support Richard House – London’s first children’s hospice – and very excited to see the pupil’s artworks which will celebrate the opening of our site in Beckton.     

The new premises will offer easy work-based solutions for those who need a quiet space outside their home without the commitment of an office rental. Alongside storage, our Beckton site will provide workspace pods for use by storage customers which include free Wi-Fi, document storage and forklift facilities.”
