Residents and businesses in Watford took part in a Shredathon to support two local charities, Watford’s Women’s Centre and Watford Helps COVID-19 Appeal.
Shredpoint, based on Tolpits Lane in Watford offered shredding of confidential documents to members of the public between January 25 and January 30, and local businesses and successfully raised £2500 which has now been donated equally between the two charities.
Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor, said: “It is great to have another £1250 donated to the Watford Helps COVID-19 Appeal. This money has gone a long way in supporting local charities around the borough to continue their fantastic work supporting the most vulnerable in Watford throughout the pandemic.
“Thank you to everyone who got involved, made a donation and to Shredpoint for hosting this fantastic event.”
Director of Shredpoint, Rob Anderson, said “Putting on a Shredathon Week during lockdown was a gamble which I’m glad to say paid off. There were obviously less people attending but those that came were more generous mainly because of the two great local charities supported, Watford Women’s Centre and Watford Covid 19 Appeal.”
