Visitors to Oswestry's Bailey Head on Friday were given the chance to get rid of any important documents and raise money for charity.

Justin Soper, from Rotary Club of Oswestry and Sherie Soper and Harry Richardson, from Oswestry Borderland Rotary Club, joined forces to raise money for youth projects around the area.

They were joined by Oswestry company Evastore Document Management, based in the Artillery Business Park, who brought their custom-made truck designed to shred anything brought forward, with a fee paid for official documents.

Justin admitted he was delighted so many people took up the service for charity.

He said: "The real purpose of this shredding session at the Bailey Head was to raise funds for local young people and youth organisations for their projects in and around Oswestry.

"Even a donation of something like £50 can make a huge impact and the difference for a youth project and we want to make a contribution to something that is a deserving cause.

"We want to give our thanks to Oswestry Town Council for allowing us to set up on the Bailey Head during their charity Friday market.

"We really want to thanks EvaStore for helping us with this event who want to help more people in the community and other local projects.

"By lunchtime, we had raised £200 and were were there for the rest of the day. The shredding is genuine – anyone who came got an official, proper certificate for using the shredder."

Jess Jones, from EvaStore, admitted she was delighted her company could support the clubs.

She added: "We were delighted to take part in the shredding for the Rotary clubs and we really want to do more to help."

Oswestry Rotary's Justin Soper said:

"We raised £230 by shredding 286 kg of paperwork which is more than a quarter of a ton!

"Both EvaStore and The Town Council in partnership with the 2 Rotary Clubs are keen to repeat this event in the Spring!

"Several people who brought in paperwaork for shredding said what a good idea it was - rather than just being asked to donate they liked getting a service in return for their donation."

A spokesman for EVAStore said :

"Thank you so much to everyone who came along today - it was a great success!

"We shredded 1/4 tonne of paper and raised £230 for Oswestry Rotary Clubs which will go towards funding youth groups and projects in the local area!

If you missed out today, don't worry. We will be back again in the Spring!
