The new Charity Car Partner of the Month for August is also a brand new Charity Car partner! We're delighted to welcome Age UK Birmingham to the world of car donations. Here's a bit more about them and their amazing work:
While this well-known and hardworking charity needs funds all year round to help with its vital work for the over 50s community, Russell Blakey at Age UK was keen to talk to us about their desperate need for a new minibus, and tell us how car donations could help fund this essential part of their day to day work.

"Our minibuses are used for all our day-care members as well as for special day trips, and with over 8,000 trips a year they literally make our work possible. The oldest of our little fleet has clocked up over 100,000 miles and really has seen better days - it's becoming uneconomical to run and costing us a fortune in repair bills. We'd love to replace it and make sure we can still get our members to where they need and want to be, and we're hoping old car donations will give our fundraising a boost in the right direction. Starting as Partner of the Month is a fantastic way to begin!"

Age UK and the Big Chinwag! 
Age UK Birmingham runs day care at Oscott Community Centre and Seymour Dementia Care Centre where over 1,000 members a year with dementia, depression and a variety of other long term health issues receive the support they need. 
The charity's overall aim is to create an environment where older people flourish to ensure a fulfilling and enjoyable experience in later life; encouraging 'Health, Well-Being and Social Contact'. The Charity Car team says "Here here" to that! 
If you have an old car that you can donate to Age UK Birmingham, any money it raises will go towards replacing their oldest minibus and would be another positive step towards securing the vital services provided for the charity's members.
