2016 - A record fundraising year for Russell Richardson

Date: 2016-12-13

Russell Richardson are pleased to announce that they have shredded their original 2016 fundraising target and have raised over £3532 for their chosen charities this year. With the total continuing to rise, the Sheffield based confidential shredding and document management company would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported their fundraising efforts in 2016, making it a record year for their charity shredding service.

Macmillan Cancer Support, Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity, Help for Heroes and St Luke’s Hospice have all benefited from the charity shredding service this year. 

While the charities benefit financially from the shredding service provided by Russell Richardson, the local community benefits from the convenience and reassurance of knowing that they can simply drop off bags and boxes of confidential waste for securely shredding in return for a charity donation. 

“We get some great feedback from the charity shredding service we provide,” said Jonathan Richardson, Managing Director at Russell Richardson. “People are very generous and the amount we have raised this year shows the value people place on the service and protecting their identity. It’s certainly been our busiest year yet for individuals bringing in their personal documents for shredding as the public become more aware of protecting their identity and the dangers of identity fraud.”

Individuals are invited to bring in bags or boxes of documents to Russell Richardson’s secure site on Clay Street in Attercliffe. Documents can be left in files and paperclips, staples and fastenings do not need to be removed. Items are usually shredded immediately and can be witnessed on the CCTV screen in reception.

Adding to the fundraising total this year, Russell Richardson have been donating £20 to Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity on behalf of any new customer that takes up their small business shredding service. The donations will run to Christmas and details of the small business shredding service can be found here.
