Shred Easy & The Community
As a company we recognise that the way we operate, purchase, recruit and invest, impacts the local communities we work within.
And as such, we strive to work in partnership with the community and voluntary sectors to make a positive contribution.
We also explore ways in which we can support our own employees to share time, skills and resources in support of their local communities.
Below is a just small selection of the community initiatives Shred Easy have been involved in.
Name the Truck competition!
In July 2010, Shred Easy partnered up with a local primary school, Bowdon Church of England Primary School, to name 10 of our shredding vehicles. We were so impressed with the imagination and creativity shown that we ran the same competition with a school local to our Rugby depot, Southbrook Infants School. Look out for the results!
The Shred Easy Team at the Great Manchester Run
In May 2010, Shred Easy's Chief Executive Alan O'Brien, Managing Director Jim Watson, National Sales Manager Simon Parker, and Channel Marketing Manager Noose Saha, all ran (or walked!) the BUPA Great Manchester Run. Running for a variety of charities including the NSPCC and Macmillan Cancer, the team raised over £500.
A Hot Summer Night for Shred Easy, the NSPCC and the Halle Orchestra
Last year, we sponsored the annual charity event in aid of the NSPCC and the Halle Orchestra. The Carribbean themed evening (A Hot Summer Night) raised over £30,000 for the two worthy causes.
