When your car goes on its final journey to the scrapyard, the benefit to charity could be only just beginning – Car Donation Network turns old cars into funds to help people in need.
If you have been tempted by the shiny new 13-reg models in your local dealership and you are too short of time to clean out your old car and prepare it for part-exchange or private sale, you might be considering scrapping it. Choosing Car Donation Network instead of a traditional scrap dealer will ensure that charities benefit from the proceeds of your vehicle, whether it is repaired and resold or broken up for parts.
You may not have had the chance to donate to Comic Relief, but care about the plight of children in Africa who are lacking food and education. If so, donating your old car to African Children’s Fund will ensure that children are given nutritious porridge at school, and that they can attend lessons in suitable buildings. Established in 2006, the charity works in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe to provide children with opportunities.
Another charity we work with is Epilepsy Scotland, which was established 59 years ago to promote the rights of people with epilepsy. It works to eliminate discrimination against people with epilepsy, and ensure that they have the services they need in order to live a full life. They provide support to people in addition to promoting awareness through campaigning, and donating your old car to them will help to enable them to continue their important work.
Many people will have been affected by the loss of a family member or friend to terminal illness, and in such circumstances, people often spend their last days or weeks in a hospice. Donating your car to Bolton Hospice will help to sustain this charitable organisation, which provides palliative care to adults with incurable illnesses and helps them to maintain their quality of life until their final moments.
Central to Car Donation Network’s operations is the Recycling Lives social welfare charity, which is operated by the Recycling Lives social business. This charity helps homeless and unemployed individuals to find accommodation and work, and supports them with a holistic programme to ensure they gain qualifications and receive advice on how to manage debts. With Recycling Lives, people who have experienced severe hardship can work their way to independence with the best possible guidance.
Our customer-friendly, convenient scheme supports a range of charities that work to find solutions to problems, and improve people’s lives, both at home and abroad. If you are thinking of sending your old car to the scrapyard, now is the time to book a collection with Car Donation Network!
