Scrap cars raise money for charity

When people’s vehicles become too old and unreliable, scrap car disposal must be engaged in. Thankfully, it is now easier than ever before for individuals to scrap cars and they can even arrange for experts to take their motors away for free and dispose of them safety and legally, ensuring that as much of the products as possible is recycled.

Meanwhile, one social enterprise has been making the most of old cars. According to a report on Honest John, Giveacar has raised over half a million pounds in less than two years thanks to scrap cars.

This figure was reached after a donation of £479.50 to the Chestnut Tree House Childrens Hospice, which is the only children’s hospice in Sussex and cares for youngsters ranging from babies to 19-year-olds with progressive life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses.

Commenting on his decision to engage in scrap car disposal for charity, Mr Tessaro said: “I didn’t know much about how to get rid of an old car and so I was really happy to come across the Giveacar scheme. It allowed me to give a great donation to a local hospice that is doing wonderful work for children with life-threatening illnesses.”

Meanwhile, director of children’s services at the hospice Linda Perry added: “We are over the moon that a donation to Chestnut Tree House has helped Giveacar reach this important milestone and on behalf of the children and families at the hospice, I would like to say a big thank you to Giveacar and to everyone who has made a donation to Chestnut Tree House in this way.”

The hospice requires more than £2 million each year to remain in operation. Families that use the service are not charged for their care and the centre receives very little funding from the government, so it relies on the generosity of people in the local area.
