Charity Car donations hit half a million

Posted on 10th Jul 2019 by Charity Car Posted in: Latest News

Those of you with eagle eyes may have spotted a small but significant change on our homepage… We are very proud to be able to say that we have now passed on over half a million pounds worth of donations to charitable causes! That’s over £500,000 generated by your kind car donations!

Whatever part you’ve played, whether it was letting a friend or colleague know about this unique donation method, or giving your own car to a good cause through Charity Car, we’d like to send you a massive THANK YOU!

Over half a million raised for charities through Charity Car

The Charity Car scheme was born from the realisation that we (as part of the UK’s largest scrap car recycling network) could do a better job than anyone else trying to offer a car donation service. We also knew we could pass on more of your cars’ value to the causes that need it. From day one, the best scrap price we can get from our nationwide network of recycling centres is the amount your chosen charity receives, so your old car gets turned into cash for good causes without any hassle, or any cost to you or your charity.

The scrap metal market has had its ups and downs over the years with highs seeing an average scrap price at hundreds, and lows plummeting to under £50! But despite the vast differences in value and size of donations, our charity partners have always made one thing very clear – every penny really does count. Your car donations have helped environmental charities save Rainforests, animal welfare charities care for abandoned animals and endangered species, children’s charities protect the human rights of young people across the globe, health charities research treatments and cures for diseases, as well as giving many more vital services the support they need to help people, animals and environments around the world.

Imagining an old car rusting on a drive-way, or sat on a garage forecourt costing more to fix than it’s worth… It’s a pretty dismal picture. But turn those old wheels into a donation for a cause you feel passionate about and we know how good it feels.

We are so happy to have been part of this incredible car donation journey for so many people and so many wonderful Charity Car Partner charities.

Here’s to the next £500,000 we can all help to raise for worthwhile causes… We’re already on it!
