APSS helps charity save £1,500 a year

Lincolnshire-based commercial joinery company APSS has delivered six new lockable shredding cupboards to Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire, in partnership with Lindap, saving the charity around £1,500 a year in compliant disposal costs.

Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire had been looking for small ways to reduce costs to make a big difference during the challenging climate and identified their secure waste shredder units as an item to look at. The secure units allow GDPR guidelines to be complied with and allow for the safe disposal of documentation. It had approached Lincoln-based charity Lindap to help. Lindap specialises in designing and making special equipment for people with disabilities when there is no commercial product available.

APSS design director, Stuart Wall, also a volunteer at Lindap, took the request and made it a reality.

APSS has an onsite joinery workshop that creates bespoke storage and office furniture which happily compliments the commercial refurbishment, design, and construction side of the business.

The company assisted with the design and production to create the six bespoke shredding units for Age UK’s Lincoln City Centre branch.

Stuart Wall said: “It is great to help out local charities in this way and work for a charity that supports the needs of local people and the community. It is wonderful to have the support of APSS with these projects.”

Tom Ellis, technical services and facilities manager for Age UK, said: “Everyone across the county is looking for ways to tighten their belt and help save those pennies where they can. Being a local, independent charity, we take great pride in using every penny provided to give as much to our local, older community as we possibly can. It’s about making a direct difference for people to live better.”
