To accelerate its fund-raising work, ExtraCare has now joined up with Giveacar, a non-profit social enterprise which collects unwanted and unused cars for charity.
Regardless of their condition, cars are collected, free of charge, nationwide by Giveacar, then sold through an online auction or disposed of at an authorised treatment facility.
Profits from the sale are then donated to ExtraCare. Even if it’s a banger that is scrapped, it could still net ExtraCare around £35.
“This is a great way to get rid of that old problem car at no cost to you, whilst at the same time helping us to provide better lives for older people. It’s a win win situation,” Alison Whittingham, Managing Director, ExtraCare Shops Ltd, said.
Many car owners want an easy and completely free way to get rid of their old car. Giveacar will help them to do this in a legal and environmentally friendly way whilst making a valuable contribution to the fundraising aims of the Charity.
