Age UK Suffolk is the latest charity to join a scheme which turns unwanted cars into cash.
The charity, which helps 25,000 older people in the county, has joined Giveacar, a non-profit social enterprise which collects and auctions unwanted or unused cars for charity.
Among the 1,000 charities already signed up to Giveacar are St Nicholas Hospice Care and East Anglian Children’s Hospices.
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 a charity of the car owner’s choice.
Even if the banger is scrapped, it still nets the good cause chosen by its owner between £40 and £160.
Ursula Austin, Business Development Manager of Age UK Suffolk said: “We are absolutely delighted to be included in this scheme and hope that many of our supporters and people in Suffolk will remember it and dispose of their cars via Giveacar.”
