Charity Help is Child’s Play For Portable Space

Posted 04 Oct 2016

When a request to supply shipping containers to make an eye-catching entrance feature to Mega Land, the family-friendly construction zone at CarFest, in aid of the BBC’s Children In Need Appeal, Portable Space was keen to help.

CarFest is the brainchild of Radio 2 Broadcaster, Chris Evans and as part of the 2015 events, organisers wanted to use the containers to make an arched entrance at two festivals – one in the North and one in the South – and needed delivery and collection in both cases.

Mark Dolman from Portable Space said: “When the call came in from Charlotte at CarFest, we agreed to help, not just with the containers but also getting them to the required sites. Children In Need is a very worthy cause and we were happy to contribute.”

Charlotte said:

“Portable Space were just brilliant. Not only did they enthusiastically supply five shipping containers – rather than three as initially requested – they also provided us with technical drawings and photos, as well as all the necessary information for our Safety Officer.

I am sure that from Portable Space’s perspective, the contribution was costly and time-consuming. From ours, they MADE our feature – the entrance they created was amazing. It was wonderful to have such charitable, co-operative enthusiasm with no reward requested.”
