AN illuminated shredding truck is set to do business in Rotherham next week — and it’s all to help sick children.
A recycling firm will call at the headquarters of Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday to hold a charity shred.
The truck, from Attercliffe-based confidential waste specialists Russell Richardson, will be at the Chamber HQ in the Genesis Business Park on Sheffield Road from 10am to noon to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Charity’s National Elf Service fundraising campaign which runs throughout December in aid of Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
The truck will shred confidential waste in exchange for a donation to the cause at the coffee and mince pies networking event.
It is part of a fundraising campaign which will take the company’s trucks far and wide to raise money.
Marketing manager Emma Moorhouse said: “We’re very proud to have one of only four stand-alone children’s hospitals in Sheffield and we support its charity as often as we can.
“We decided to follow Coca Cola’s lead and ensure no one can miss our mobile shredding shredder truck during December.
“We will be offering to shred personal confidential waste from all our customers and their staff in exchange for donations to the National Elf Service campaign, which helps a great cause but also is our way of keeping people safe from fraud this season.”
